OCEANSIDE, Calif., May 18, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Brief Relief, the leading manufacturer of personal lavatory systems, today announced the newest product in their line of portable sanitation products, the Briefcase Commode. The Briefcase Commode is an OSHA-compliant, sanitary, premium quality, portable toilet for construction worksites, utilities, and alternative energy sites, or anywhere operations and safety managers need to provide their teams with discrete, cost-efficient, hygienic, and environmentally friendly facilities.
This compact toilet weighs just seven pounds and folds closed to a standard briefcase size, making it convenient for highly mobile employees and a wide variety of work sites. It provides the comfort, height, and ease of use of a standard toilet. Adding to its versatility, it is stable on uneven ground and supports up to 500 pounds.
Because it is used in conjunction with Brief Relief Liquid Waste Bags that gel liquid waste and neutralize odor or the Disposa-John kit for liquid and solid waste, there is no mixing, messy chemical waste storage tanks, or dump station required. The waste bags can be sealed after use and disposed of in any receptacle headed for landfill. The Brief Relief Privacy Shelter or Bin Door Buddy privacy curtain completes the solution.
“Human waste management is a concern across industries where employees need to spend time in remote environments without the convenience of modern plumbing,” said Jim Goode, president and chief operating officer at Brief Relief. “The Briefcase Commode portable toilet is a cost-effective, sanitary option that provides comfort, privacy, and discretion for employees in remote locations.”
The Briefcase Commode’s innovative design allows for easy setup and tear down. The toilet comes folded into a 19″x14″x5″ rectangular form-factor with a built-in carry handle for easy transport when not in use. One-person setup takes less than a minute and is achieved by unfolding the legs, removing the lid, unfolding the plastic bag from within the foil bag, and placing it inside the toilet with the bag opening either under the folding seat or covering the seat for extra cleanliness. After use, the bag lifts out with draw straps and is double sealed using the draw straps on the plastic bag and the zip-top on the foil bag. The sealed landfill-safe foil bag can be disposed of in any trash receptacle.
“Operations managers, Infection Control teams, EH&S management teams, and Industrial Hygienists strive to keep their employees safe during COVID-19. Our Briefcase Commode is a safe and sanitary portable commode that sets up quickly and conveniently anywhere people need a portable bathroom,” said Goode.
