In pursuit of the university’s internationalization efforts, and in complying with the standards set thereof by the Bureau of Immigration, the accrediting agency, different MSU-Naawan campus offices work collaboratively to ensure the critical importance of complying with all regulatory requirements to safeguard the safety and well-being of our students, faculty, staff, and visitors.
Thus, on August 18, 2023, Friday, the Municipal Sanitary Inspector of LGU – Naawan Ms. April Rose Waga, and the Provincial Sanitary Inspector led by Sanitary Engineer Jacklyn Lim, conducted a campus-wide sanitary inspection of all buildings, laboratories, and other campus facilities, including the solid waste disposal facility.
The inspection was carried out per local health regulations and guidelines, focusing on identifying potential health hazards and recommending corrective measures to maintain a healthy and conducive environment for the students, staff, and visitors. The inspection covered various aspects of the campus, including but not limited to:
1) Sanitation Facilities: The availability, cleanliness, and maintenance of toilets, washrooms, and waste disposal units were thoroughly examined.
2) Food Handling and Preparation Areas: Campus canteens, cafeterias, and food storage areas were inspected to ensure proper food handling practices and hygiene standards.
3) Dormitories and Living Quarters: The cleanliness and sanitation of dormitory rooms and living quarters were assessed to ensure a healthy living environment for the students.
4) Common Areas: Classrooms, laboratories, libraries, and other shared spaces were examined to ensure cleanliness and proper waste management.
5) Water Supply and Quality: The campus water supply system was inspected to ensure the availability of safe and potable water.
6) Vector Control: Measures taken to prevent and control the presence of disease-carrying vectors such as mosquitoes and rodents were evaluated.
7) General Environment: Overall campus grounds, landscaping, and outdoor areas were assessed for cleanliness and proper maintenance.
The said inspection yielded a positive outcome for the campus and its administrations, as the campus sanitary inspection conducted by the municipal and provincial sanitary inspectors concluded that MSU – Naawan is generally maintaining satisfactory standards of cleanliness, hygiene, and safety, thus, successfully passed the general checklist in obtaining a municipal sanitary permit.
However, to ensure the continuous compliance of the campus, the administration is encouraged to implement the recommended measures to address the identified areas for improvement. By consistently adhering to these recommendations, the campus can ensure the well-being and health of its students, staff, and visitors.
