CSA Secretariat affected by air quality issues

The Saint Lucia Civil Service Association (CSA) Secretariat at Sans Souci has been closed to undertake work to address air quality issues in the building.

“There seems to mold in the building and so when we got hold of this situation yesterday the staff were advised to stay home,” CSA President Yvonne Edwin explained.

The CSA official disclosed that staff members have been sent for medical checks to determine how they have been affected.

She said that when the health and safety of workers is compromised, it is important that the employer address the situation.

Edwin said that efforts are being made to do so.

“Between today and Tuesday  when we are hoping that the office hours will be resumed – it is possible providing that all of the cleaning and  the required assessment and tests and cleaning are done by then. If it is not possible or convenient to resume work on Tuesday, then we will make a determination and advise on the best way forward,” Edwin said.

    So many air quality problems in Saint Lucia…
    If things continue like that we’ll have to build structures with plenty windows (that can open) and use standing/ceiling fans.

    I wonder why these CSA ppl ever crawl out of the rock from whence they came.These buildings didn’t just get all the mold they now seem to be so concern about,u all didn’t die before u all won’t die now.Let the government concern itself with more pressing matters pertaining to straggling ppl of this country ,and stop winning like babies,the mold will be dealt with in a timely manner.I am sure u all homes have more mold than these buildings.
