I cannot find any reference in the IRC that requires temporary toilet facilities for residential sites. As always you will have some contractors that will hang their hat on " The code doesn't require it" in order not to provide temporary facilities. This would require an ordinance on the local level.

I don't see that in the model IRC. Am I missing something?

It is not in the IRC it is in the IBC Section 3305.1 Facilities required. Sanitary facilities shall be provided during construction, remodeling or demolition activities in accordance with the International Plumbing Code.

Section 311 (2015 IPC) requires toilet facilities to be provided for workers. I know this should be a no brainer but does the IRC specifically say anything requiring toilet facilities for workers or does the IPC requirement  come into play on this issue for residential  jobs?
