Squat Toilets Installed in Australian Taxation Office to Cater For Diverse workforce

SITTING down on the loo is optional for Box Hill’s tax officials, whose plush new digs include squat toilets favoured in parts of Asia and Europe.

Australian Services Union taxation branch secretary Jeff Lapidos said the Australian Taxation Office resorted to toilet lessons on cubicle doors at its Canberra head office after the same problem emerged about three years ago.

“What they would do is put their feet on either side of the toilet seat and quite often miss,” he said.

“It wasn’t good for other staff who came along afterwards and would have to complain repeatedly about the state of the toilets.”

“I can imagine it will spread throughout new buildings and I can even see them appearing in other places where toilets are being replaced.”
