The World Toilet Organization experts are training a group of selected cleaners to better cleanse and sanitize toilets of one major tropical tourist destination in China.
The three-day training is for 20 cleaners, from Haikou and Sanya, two biggest cities in China's southernmost province of Hainan, as well as the Meilan International Airport and Sanya beaches.
They are taught to practise daily and special cleaning and minor repairs in toilets in line with the World Toilet Organization public toilet service quality standards.
The international organization, together with the provincial government and a Singaporean toilet culture group, initiated the training ahead of the 2011 World Toilet Summit and Expo from Nov. 22 to 24 in Haikou.
Chen Xiaojing, deputy head of the provincial Department of Housing and Urban-Rural Development, said, "The joint training program will help improve professional levels of toilet cleaners and promote the standardized management of public toilets in Hainan."
The scenic island of Hainan plans to build itself into a world-level travel attraction, luring global tourists with tropical styles, seafood, quality service and good facilities. First-rate toilets are one key aspect of modern facilities, Hainan officials believe.
Quite a few travellers from overseas often grumbled about cleanliness, comfort and accessibility environment of public toilets in China.
The training program started on the World Toilet Day, which was initiated ten years ago on Nov. 19 by the World Toilet Organization to raise global awareness about the daily struggles of 2.6 billion people still without access to appropriate and sanitary conditions.
