We have a community communications plan which is activated in the event of an emergency or critical incident, as soon as we have secured the immediate safety of those on site.
We ask our community and all visitors to report any safety or environmental hazards, accidents, incidents or near misses using the appropriate contact below.
In the event of an alarm, please follow the directions of the designated Health and Safety lead. If you are a visitor to campus, please follow the directions of your host.
Each campus has emergency evacuation signage displayed throughout the campus, and a protocol for both evacuation and harbour in place.
A lightning alarm operates on both campuses and requires everyone to seek shelter until the all-clear alarm is sounded.
We take guidance from the respective Singapore government agencies in our planning and response towards any emergency and crisis as well as environmental factors such as haze and health concerns such as COVID-19.

Health and Safety
If you have any general concerns about the facilities or physical environment at the College, please email email@example.com.
If you have any concerns about the safety or wellbeing of a student at UWCSEA please don't hesitate to speak with one of our many Safeguarding Leads who are trained to respond to such concerns.
We are committed to providing a safe and secure learning and working environment. The College has both Emergency and Critical Incident Response Plans which have been developed in consultation with the relevant government and response agencies such as Singapore Civil Defence Force, the Singapore Police Force and International SOS.
These plans are regularly reviewed. School leaders, staff and students take part in regular emergency training exercises to practise how to handle emergency situations in the school, for example evacuation alarms. They are supported by our team of on-site security officers, the Head of Health, Risk and Safety and the Head of Operations and Facilities.
The wellbeing of our community is at the centre of our response to any emergency or other critical incident. Where necessary, the plans are age-appropriate and specific to the individual campuses and community members who may be affected.
We are well prepared to respond and have detailed protocols for first emergency responses (to secure the immediate safety of our community and to call for assistance when necessary) for short-term management including communications, as well as for longer term support of our community should that be required.
