Unisex Restroom

Is it permissible to have one unisex restroom in an EMS volunteer building which is never occupied on a regular basis by both sexes?

The federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) enforces safety and health legislation including sanitation requirements for general industry. Per OSHA standards, a unisex restroom is permissible as long as it can only be occupied by one person at a time and can be locked from the inside. A workplace must have a minimum of one toilet for one to 15 employees, two for 16 to 35 employees, three for 36 to 55 employees, four for 56 to 80 employees, five for 81 to 110 employees and six for 111 to 150 employees. Workplaces with more than 150 employees must provide six toilets, plus one additional toilet for each 40 employees over 150.
