Please refer to your State's Factories Rules. All State Factories Rules prescribe the number of toilets and other amenities for the workers (employees).
I feel the members should take the trouble to consult relevant statutes before posting the question.
You have asked for some suggestions on the number of utility blocks in a factory.
Now, while submitting factory plant layout for approval, the no. of workers and accordingly the no. of utility blocks are also required to be shown in drawings.
But you can insist for higher no. of such blocks and not just providing for the minimum nos. so that, such blocks can take care of any substancial rise in workforce in future.
While calculating the no. of Utility Blocks, all workers including staff and contract workers are required to be considered in any one shift or relay. The maximum workforce in any one shift will be the deciding number...
Section 19 in The Factories Act, 1948
19. Latrines and urinals.—
(3) The State Government may prescribe the number of latrines and urinals to be provided in any factory in proportion to the numbers of male and female workers ordinarily employed therein, and provide for such further matters in respect of sanitation in factories, including the obligation of workers in this regard, as it considers necessary in the interest of the health of the workers employed therein.
Please refer your state govt TN factory rules 1950
