WORLD TOILET DAY

ABOUT WORLD TOILET DAY

World Toilet Day falls on the 19th of November every year. It is a movement to inspire action in tackling the global sanitation crisis. Despite having a sound sanitation system and proper washroom facilities in Malaysia, many people are still experiencing unhygienic washrooms especially in the public toilets. The cleanliness of public toilets reflects the civilisation of a society. Dirty toilets show that the public are less concerned on hygiene and this will tarnish the nation’s image.

Many also experience dirty cubicles, bad smells and poor hygiene habits in the workplace washroom. This is concerning when people spend more time in the office than ever before and expect higher standards of hygiene and cleanliness. In fact, 1 in 4 office workers don’t wash their hands after using the toilet. This is one of the reasons that make workplaces the ideal environment for germs to spread through cross contamination.

Impact of poor washroom hygiene to businesses:

  • Staff absenteeism due to sickness thus resulting in lost of productivity
  • Staff presenteeism – working while sick can potentially spread infectious diseases to others
  • Global estimates the cost of lost productivity due to illnesses caused by lack of sanitation and poor hygiene at up to 5% of GDP
