Cleaning supervisors must shoulder blame for dirty toilets

THE topic on public toilets has been ongoing for a long time and there seems to be no end to it, and no improvements either.

All these can be solved if everyone takes a little effort to keep the place useable for the next person.

The root of the problem is supervision by the officers in charge of the cleaners. If they are not strict and allow the workers to be slack in their jobs, no improvement can be obtained.

The supervisor must see that faulty taps and door latches are repaired as soon as possible, toilet seats are well cleaned and floors are properly mopped dry and toilet rolls are installed in each toilet.

Very often, repairs are not attended to for months while taps and flush systems are not working.

With a growing ageing population, especially people with Parkinson’s disease and other muscular disabilities, there are not enough sitting toilets.

Once an old person squats, he cannot get up. There are no railings to hold in order to raise himself up.

In many toilets along the highways, only one or two sitting toilets are available for use against seven or 10 squatting ones.

Sometimes these toilets are not functioning: either the flushing system is faulty or it is fully clogged up.

Toilets for the handicapped are used by able-bodied people and there are no notices on the door to stipulate that they are meant only for handicapped persons.

Public places like supermarkets, shopping malls, big department stores also lack supervision to keep their toilets clean.

Another point of interest is that there are different types of squatting toilets.

The ones that are raised are dangerous as one slip will result in the foot being wedged in. The authorities should look into this.

Millions of ringgit have been spent on public toilets and we are still getting poor results.

Do not blame users when the toilet is faulty and cannot be flushed or when there is no water for flushing.

Repairs should be prompt and with supervision, our problems with toilets should be considerably lessened.

SU SEE KAY,
Kuala Lumpur.
