We have Mail: President, Restroom Association (Singapore)
With the current Covid-19 pandemic, it is essential for everyone to maintain good public hygiene at highly-frequented places such as hawker centres. The RAS, Restroom Association (Singapore) commenced its public outreach at 40 hawker centres from January to March, as part of its three-year LOO (Let's Observe Ourselves) Campaign at Hawker Centres supported by the National Environment Agency. RAS intends to reach out to all hawker centres by the end March 2024.
Apart from public outreach, the three-year campaign entails training of cleaning and facility management staff, audits of public toilets and recognition of exemplary hawker centres. A comprehensive audit report was shared with NEA and the town councils managing the hawker centres. Audits are a key pillar of our flagship Happy Toilet Programme and the public had the opportunity to better understand about them in MediaCorp's latest special series. The series featured interviews with interesting work professionals and one of our Eco Assessors who had been performing the audits, were featured in the series.
RAS is also pleased to receive the support from Dyson on its Happy Toilets at Preschools Projects Grant to offer grants to participating preschools working with children on educational projects ranging from decorating toilets, inspecting toilets to showing kindness to cleaning attendants. We strongly believe the younger generation can be better inculcated with good etiquette through projects instead of only conducting lessons and talks. We hope our future generation can be more gracious to show consideration to cleaning attendants by keeping toilets clean.
