Restroom Association (Singapore) commemorates World Toilet Day
At the first inaugural Singapore WASH Conference held at the Tampines Regional Library's auditorium to commemorate World Toilet Day, Guest-of-Honour Ms Grace Fu, Minister of Prime Minister's Office, also Second Minister for the Environment & Water Resources and Second Minister for Foreign Affairs, launched the 3rd edition of the Guide to Better Public Toilet Design & Maintenance.
During the conference, RAS Honorary Secretary Mr Ho Chee Kit, signed a Memorandum of Understanding with two partners as part of RAS' strategic move to become a one-stop solution provider which includes innovative washroom products.
RAS has been providing solutions in terms of certification, consultation, education and training since its inception in 1998 but has never looked into product solutions. Another Memorandum of Understanding was signed in September with Infinergy Systems Solutions (ISS), an IT partner, to provide innovative solutions such as an electronic feedback system. ISS is the first company to sign a Memorandum of Understanding with RAS.
The LOO (Let's Observe Ourselves) Awards ceremony was held in conjunction with the conference. A total of 65 nominations were received and a total of 20 recipients, including the Best Happy Toilet and Star Eco-Assessor category (which is not open for nominations) were selected to receive the awards. A record of 10 awards, grocery vouchers and invitation letters to the 'Everybody's Business' special movie screening were presented to washroom cleaning attendants in recognition of their efforts and professionalism.
Other WTD activities were the Happy Toilet Hawker Centre Cleanup for 22 hawker centres under the Happy Toilet Programme and the LOO (Let's Observe Ourselves) Carnival which had been held at a number of shopping malls over the preceding months.
The key message for WTD last year was: 'Ignite a SPARK - Share, Promote & Adopt Restroom Kindness'.
