Singaporean toilet association ensures coffee shop facilities are clean and hygienic
With life starting to get back to some sort of normality in Singapore, RAS, - the Restroom Association (Singapore) – has been stepping up its essential services.
In September, 20 training sessions on toilet cleaning and assessment were conducted for more than 150 coffee shop operators and cleaning attendants, with more sessions planned in the months ahead.
This four-hour training programme, in partnership with the National Environment Agency (NEA), is part of the Public Toilet Cleanliness initiative and is offered free of charge.
This ongoing initiative sees NEA working with RAS and premises owners of selected locations such as hawker centres and public transport hubs, to raise cleanliness standards. A systematic approach is adopted with pre- and post-audits, user education and training for cleaners.
The programme consists of both theory and practical sessions - the theory session covers the NEA's Keep Singapore Clean Toilet Checklist which allows the cleaners to understand the minimum standard to meet for toilet cleanliness while the NEA's Pictorial Guide on Washroom Cleaning Procedures trains the attendants on the correct steps to take when toilet cleaning, including proper removal of human spillages such as vomit, blood, etc. After the theory session, the practical session covers trainer's demonstrations on cleaning tasks such as washing of urinals, toilet bowls and basins, which is followed by the attendants taking turns to perform the tasks under the trainer’s watchful eye.
