Business owners have a duty of care to provide certain facilities for it’s staff members so that they are in line with HSE (Health & Safety Executive) requirements. I found that the facilities information page on the HSE website was quite a basic list of regulations although I then realised that for various other types of industries there are more specific laws to abide by such as for construction sites where danger is of a higher risk.

I found it interesting to find that the number of toilet facilities required in a building goes on the number of employees and again this is varied for the amount of men or women that work there as well. I stumbled across an interesting website with regards to certain laws in the UK which I have attached the link to below.
