SEA Games: S'pore organising committee partners S'pore Institution of Safety Officers

The Singapore South-east Asia Games Organising Committee (SINGSOC) and the Singapore Institution of Safety Officers have signed a two-year Memorandum of Understanding, pledging to work together for the 28th South-east Asia Games which Singapore will host in 2015.

The agreement will see both parties working together to develop and implement risk-management plans for the SEA Games.

Some of the safety aspects they will review include the Games' infrastructure, event programming, and also haze management, which has come under the spotlight in the last few weeks.

Said SINGSOC chairman Lim Teck Yin: "We cannot take safety and well-being for granted. For an event that involves large numbers of people from Singapore and abroad, the organisers of the 2015 SEA Games have an obligation to ensure we provide a safe and enjoyable experience for everyone."
