Why Electric Utility Workers Should Always Keep Portable Waste Bags Handy

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Electric utility workers face various challenges on the job. When it comes to electrical work, the smallest errors could result in significant damage to both workers and property. Without proper training and learning the different procedures and systems, the slightest mishap could lead to severe accidents or worse, death.

The job takes utility workers all over the community they serve. Meter readers travel to their utility customer’s locations to take readings of their usage. Depending on the size of the utility, workers may also be responsible for powering services on and off.

Electric line workers also often find themselves on the road as they travel to customers’ locations when they need to install meters. In times of power outages due to inclement weather, electric line workers may be called out to repair high voltage wires, splice cables, and whatever it takes to restore power.

Because electric utility workers often find themselves on the road, it’s inevitable for them to feel the urge to use the bathroom. However, a running toilet won’t always be available. Not all homeowners are open to letting strangers into their house to use the facilities. In other cases, the nearest bathroom may not be around for miles.

Fortunately, there’s a sanitary solution that gives hardworking electric utility workers a bathroom within reach no matter where they are located.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

The Benefits of Bringing Portable Lavatory Systems on the Job

When you store a Portable Lavatory System in your utility truck, you have a sanitary and convenient solution for all your bathroom needs.

The Brief Relief Commode sets up quickly as a sturdy 5-gallon base with a full-size soft foam toilet seat that fits firmly on top. Each Commode comes with a supply of Brief Relief Daily Restroom Packs, portable Waste Bags that take care of any solid or liquid waste.

The Brief Relief Disposa-John Portable Restroom is designed for men and women. For extra sanitation, it comes with an antimicrobial wipe and toilet paper. All Brief Relief products were designed to withstand travel, making them ideal for utility workers who visit various locations and spend long hours on the road.

For added privacy, you can use the Brief Relief Shelter; it’s a privacy tent that sets up in less than 2 minutes and can set up virtually anywhere. Because it’s ultra-lightweight and compact, you can store it in the utility truck with the rest of your gear.

Set-up of the portable lavatory system is easy. You line the Commode with a Brief Relief Disposa-John waste bag, do your business, and let the bag’s exclusive blend of polymers and enzymes deodorize and transform the waste into a gel. You can throw the used wipe and toilet paper right into the bag and seal it shut. The Wag bags are safe to throw in any regular trash container.[/vc_column_text][vc_separator][vc_column_text]
