BKC Is Now SG Clean Certified!

SG Clean Certification
Since the beginning of the pandemic, the Government has been encouraging concerted action needed from everyone to elevate cleanliness and public hygiene standards and make them the new norms. Launched on 16 February 2020 by the National Environment Agency (NEA), the SG Clean campaign seeks to rally stakeholders and members of the public to do their part, by adopting good personal habits and social responsibility, to raise standards of cleanliness and public hygiene in Singapore and safeguard public health.
It is envisioned that the SG Clean campaign will instill a national “keep clean culture”, where keeping Singapore clean is an integral part of our lives. An important component of the SG Clean campaign is the SG Clean quality mark, a premises-based sanitation and hygiene indicator. The SG Clean quality mark requires organisations to commit to sector-specific sanitation and hygiene checklists, to safeguard public health in Singapore.
To raise hygiene standards and transform the cleanliness levels of public spaces, the SG Clean campaign has involved owners of premises adopting the SG Clean quality mark, to reflect their commitment and ownership of maintaining high standards of environmental public hygiene at their premises. In June this year, we decided to embark on our certification journey.
During our journey, we cleared up our vestries, pantry areas, store-rooms and common areas. We also implemented a formal regular cleaning schedule, including annual spring cleaning, just like when we had members coming down to clean up the church together during Labour Day. It was indeed a community effort!
On 18 November, the NEA inspector visited both the Main Hall and Annexe. After an hour and a half, we were certified SG Clean!
We thank the Lord for enabling us to do this.
