Treasury Building Environmental Report Made Public, READ
The BU household is surprised at the Sunday Sun headline TREASURY SICK. We know circulation numbers have been tanking but to highlight what the trade unions have been asking government to address for many years and treat it as an exclusive? What about the report on the Immigration Building on the Wharf Road? What about the Ministry of Health Buildings on Jemmotts Lane? What about the many police stations and other government building which present an occupational hazard to employees every day of the year?
At the root of the problem is poor maintenance, like the Sewage plants for example. A read of the Indoor Air Quality Report prepared by REA Envirohealth International reveals that there are proactive steps the government agency responsible for cleaning public buildings can take to prevent deterioration of public buildings but we like to build new building. It is only tax dollars right! The NIS Building in the middle of Bridgetown- a UNESCO Historic sight- remains closed because of the prevailing culture of mashup and build back yet we travel the world be it Washington, London or Amsterdam to sight-see building which are hundreds of years old in pristine condition.
