Access to a Sink

Do employees working in offices have to have access to a place to wash their cups etc.? This would be like a sink or a kitchen. Is a sink placed in the bathroom sufficient for this purpose? Please post link to guidelines. Thank you.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) establishes standards for employers to provide their employees with safe and healthful working conditions. Though the OSH Act mandates that each lavatory be equipped with running water for the purpose of washing hands, Title 29 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Part 1910, Section 141, there is no regulation mandating a washing station to clean employees’ cups or dishes. Providing such a location is a benefit to employees. An employee who wishes to bring a non-disposable cup to work does so at his discretion and is responsible for his own belongings.
