Dear Members and Friends,

As the SGSecure@Workplaces representative for my office I attended a seminar yesterday organized by the Tripartite Partners in collaboration with agencies of the Home Team.

Here’s what else I learned some of which may be useful for you:-
  • Preparing your company’s response to a potential terrorist attack should be part of your Business Continuity Plan.
  • Making sure you can “work from anywhere” is key in case your location is damaged or inaccessible.
  • Training your teams in CPR and firefighting is vital as is training them to provide psychological first aid for themselves and others in the aftermath of an attack.
  • Tens of thousands of companies in Singapore have signed up for SGSecure@Workplaces. That leaves many more still to do so.
  • It’s no surprise that leadership, as always, is key to getting this done and to supporting your company’s SGSecure representative.

It’s in your business interests to fight the apathy that is the result of the wonderful peace and security we have enjoyed for so long but can no longer take for granted. Get prepared today. Encourage everyone in your company to download the SGSecure app which is available free of charge on the Apple and Android platforms. Visit www.mom.gov.sg/sgsecure and register your company’s representative and get access to a host of useful learning materials which are updated regularly.

With my best wishes.

Victor Mills
Chief Executive
