No business in the bathroom
Do not, under any circumstances, male or female, conduct any business in the bathroom. Participants will be distracted by the sounds heard from your location.

Wash your hands
Always wash your hands, regardless of what the reason was for your visit to the bathroom. You need to wash your hands for at least 20 seconds. Use soap and warm water if possible.

Emails during a bathroom visit?
Do not use any devise to send or receive emails during a visit to the bathroom. You might not be able to think in a business manner during the time in the loo. Keep your thoughts for the desk, where you are able to focus all of your attention on your work.

Don’t lie in wait
You need to do a #2. In some cases, you might stand around a full bathroom waiting for a stall to open up, but at work you shouldn’t. Nobody likes to feel pressured, so give your co-workers some space, go back to your desk and try again later (or try another bathroom). Even if the person currently doing their business isn’t aware of your presence, they are still going to feel awkward when they come out of the stall and realise you’ve been timing just how long they’ve been in there. So save them the embarrassment.

Bathroom Etiquette
Keep down the smell
Always ensure every stall has an air freshener. The fragrance should be a natural one, such as mint, clean linen, and or lavender. Avoid using floral scents, as this makes everyone around you aware of where you were, and might cause some embarrassing moments.

Dealing with cultural difference
Be aware of the various bathroom behaviours of those who have a different culture or religion to your own. Do not ask questions regarding the issue, however, do some of your own research and respect the needs of your colleagues.

Not the place to socialise
The bathroom is not the place to socialise. Even if the bathroom has large individual stalls, it is not polite to have a conversation with your neighbour. Do your business and leave. If you want to touch up on your make-up, do so as quickly as possible and do not drag others into your conversation.

Keep it clean
Keep the bathroom in the same condition as you would want to find it. Replace the toilet paper when it is finished. Ask the cleaner to clean on a regular basis and ask them to replace toilet paper and towels as often as possible.
