Toilet Facilities for Events
Event Organiser Responsibilities
Where existing toilet facilities are inadequate for an event, additional portable units are to be made available. It is important that these are well marked and located away from food storage and food service areas.
If the event involves the supply of alcohol under a special licence, toilets and hand wash stations must be provided based on the anticipated peak attendance at any one time.
It is important that toilets can be accessed from within the licenced area.
The table below identifies the minimum number of toilet facilities and hand washing stations for an event that will last longer than 3 hours. If an event is less than 3 hours or does not involve the supply of alcohol, the number of toilets can be reduced by 25%.
More than 1000
One additional toilet for every 100 people if function is less than 3 hours
One additional toilet for every 200 people if function is longer than 3 hours
Note: One additional hand washing station is required for every 10 toilets.
