Singapore Sports Council (SSC) Visit 14-10-13

On 14-10-13 while Gerard and Sarah where in town, the Branch met with the Safety Team from the Singapore Sports Council.

22 October 2013

Ms Delphine Fong and her team presented to us the structure of the Sports Council and what their function is with regard to development of safety for all sports activities and venues in Singapore, which followed with a presentation on the South East Asia (SEA) Games which will be held in Singapore during 2015.

Earlier discussions from the visit of Lawrence Waterman and his presentations on the London Olympics had led to this meeting being arranged with a vision for IOSH to support SSC with the preparations leading up to and during the SEA Games 2015.

Gerard showed the meeting a video from the success of the London Olympics legacy and discussions went on with regard to safety culture and the challenges faced. The meeting was very productive and a Letter of Collaboration will be signed between SSC and IOSH enabling IOSH to commence working with SSC in the future.
