The Chief Director, Office of the Head of Civil Service, Godwin J. Brocke, has urged Civil Servants to imbibe the attitude and culture of cleanliness in their various homes and communities.

He said cleaning exercises should not be limited to only the working environment but should become an unending activity within the communities.

He made this statement during a health screening and cleaning-up exercise, which formed part of the 2019 Civil Service Week celebrations in Accra.

He said most employees spent about one third of their lives in their offices and it was important that such environments be kept clean, adding that this would make the offices healthy for work.

He said the exercise would send a message to the public to see the importance to clean their communities.

The Chief Director said because of the demands of work, some Civil Servants were unable to visit the hospitals for regular check-ups, hence, the need for the health screening within the Ministries to give them the opportunity to know their health status.

He noted that data gathered from the exercise would enable the service know the health status of employees and inform interventions in that regard.

The Public Relations Officer, of the Ministry of Health, Elorm Ametepe, said that medical teams had been dispatched to the various Ministries to embark on the exercise.

He said it was important for workers to have regular medical check-ups to help them either manage or treat themselves from time to time.

The practice, he said, would curb unforeseen medical conditions and sudden health breakdown.

The Public Relations Officer, Ministry of Sanitation and Water Resources, Nelson Kofi Akatey, said the Ministry had joined in the exercise to champion its agenda of cleaning the environment.

He said Jekora Ventures and Zoomlion had partnered to provide logistical support for the exercise.
