The jobs of more than 600 sanitation and pest control workers from the National Environment Agency (NEA) have been redesigned, bringing about a 4 per cent increase in wages. In addition to sweeping leaves and litter from streets or spraying drains with anti-mosquito oil, the workers will now also observe and report sanitation or pest control irregularities, sometimes using handheld PDAs. More than 90 per cent of workers signed up for the programme, which involved more than 100 hours of training per worker. This resulted in a 1.5 per cent improvement in productivity, NEA said. The workers have also been given new uniforms to enhance the image of the job. Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus. blog comments powered by Disqus
