Fortifying Safety through Campus-wide Workplace Security


Enhancing workplace security across campus has become an imperative measure for ensuring the well-being of our staff and safeguarding organisational assets. This is especially true during heightened security periods when proactive security measures and activities are intensified to limit unauthorised access. 

Tailgating, Suspicious Persons and Unattended Bag on Campus

It is crucial for staff to understand the significance of identifying and mitigating risks such as tailgating, suspicious individuals, and unattended bags on campus. Each staff plays a pivotal role in ensuring that only authorised staff gain access to specific areas, while remaining vigilant against potential threats posed by suspicious persons or unattended bags.

Vehicle Undercarriage Inspections and X-Ray Screening of Mail Parcels

Our Security & Transport, Fire Safety teams undergo specialised training to carry out vehicle undercarriage inspections, aimed to prevent the entry of hazardous items such as explosives onto our premises. They are also equipped to identify and respond to potential threats posed by unmarked parcels, including improvised explosive devices (IEDs). These proactive measures enable us to maintain a  heightened state of vigilance, ensuring the safety of all individuals and assets within the hospital premises while effectively mitigating risks.

Emergency Preparedness Training and Drills

Aside from providing fire warden training for staff, we engage in collaborative efforts with fire safety teams to conduct inspections and fire evacuation drills. These initiatives are designed to enhance staff preparedness for a range of emergency scenarios, ensuring a coordinated response and safeguarding both personnel and assets in the event of a real emergency.

Fire Evacuation Drill at B10 Ward 

Conducting fire drills in hospitals is an important practice that ensures swift, coordinated responses to emergencies, safeguarding both patients and staff amidst potential chaos. In December 2023, a fire evacuation drill was conducted in B10 Ward involving staff from various departments. This successful drill was led by our nursing staff, Security & Transport, Fire Safety team, and SCDF partners, as part of enhancing our preparedness for future emergencies.
