RAS certifies Far East malls under the star-rated Happy Toilet Programme for first time
The Restroom Association (Singapore) tells us that after an on-site consultation for Clark Quay Central shopping mall, more than 20 toilets were Happy Toilet certified in September.
This means that more than 40 shopping malls from AsiaMalls Management Pte, City Developments, Far East Organisation, Frasers Centrepoint, Housing & Development Board) and The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands are now certified under the Happy Toilet Programme.
The Programme is a star-grading initiative for public toilets which focuses on five main areas - design, cleanliness, maintenance, effectiveness and satisfaction. Users will also leave the toilet happy, as the programme will ensure that they have the best experience, with all their needs met.
The cornerstone of the Programme is a grading system, based on minimum and progressive standards that start at 3 stars and rise to a maximum of 6 stars for the very best washrooms.
RAS views the Programme as another pillar of effective public education - educating users to exercise care so as to sustain the star-rating of Happy Toilets. Since 2010, RAS has been actively collaborating with many malls to hold exhibitions and carnivals to educate shoppers to keep Happy Toilets clean.
From 2014, recognition of cleaning attendants, who are maintaining Happy Toilets, were incorporated, to raise public awareness about the importance of showing kindness to the attendants.
