KINGSTON, Jamaica – The nation’s courts will receive a face-lift on Monday, May 23, 2022 in keeping with this year’s theme for Labour Day -- Reigniting a Nation for Greatness -- Protect our Heritage and Environment.
The scope of work will include, among other things, painting of the exterior and interior of some courthouses, creating more green spaces, carpentry and plumbing.
Tricia Cameron-Anglin, Director of Court Administration, said the initiative forms part of the Judiciary's strategic objective of improving the health and safety of our plants.
She added that the projects are aimed at improving the overall aesthetics of the courthouses and courtyards in an effort to create a clean and healthy environment that is conducive to productivity for staff and all court users.
“We are cognizant of the interconnectivity between the state of an individual’s environment and its impact on his or her mood. It is for this reason that we are undertaking these activities so that our staff can perform at their optimal levels in a
comfortable space,” Cameron-Anglin said.
Additionally, Cameron-Anglin said the face-lift will also help to improve customer satisfaction.
“Customers deserve a clean and a welcoming environment to conduct business. We know well that some persons do not come to the court voluntarily. As a result, we want persons to feel comfortable whenever they have to come to any of our courts,” Cameron-Anglin said.
The slogan for Labour Day is Mek Jamaica Cris an Clean.
