    What is Environmental Sanitation Regime?

    The Environmental Sanitation (ES) Regime is a set of guidelines made by the NEA in 2019. The goal of ESR is to promote environmental hygiene and its role in preventing the spread of infectious diseases including COVID-19. Guidelines apply to all sorts of industries including the pest management industry.

    Killem Pest has certified ECCs (Environment Control Coordinators) who can assist with coming up with an ESP (Environment Sanitation Program) for premises. The ESP covers cleaning, indoor air quality and pest management. Read on to learn more about Killem Pest’s role in the Environmental Sanitation Regime.

    Which locations do ESR standards apply to?

    The standards of the Environmental Sanitation Regime are especially focused on places where the risk of transmission of infectious diseases is high, including:

    Elderly care facilities, community centers, coffeeshops, food centers and markets, food courts and canteens, schools (including preschools), social service facilities, shopping malls and student care centers.

    How does the Environmental Sanitation Regime apply to the pest control sector?

    Pest control companies are responsible for keeping Singapore safe and free from pests, including those that can spread diseases like dengue. Pest control companies already play an important role in public health. The ESR standards are set out to build and intensify the focus on existing sanitation and hygiene measures.
