Update on Haze Situation

1.    Since Monday morning, conditions have been visibly hazy with a strong burning smell detected across many parts of Singapore.

2.    Given the current hazy conditions island-wide, Singapore Sports Council would like to remind all National Sports Associations (NSAs) and sports events organisers on the importance of putting in place adequate risk assessments and haze action plans for all sporting events in Singapore.

3.    NSAs are strongly advised to check the National Environment Agency’s (NEA) website regularly to monitor the Pollutants Standards Index (PSI) level and implement these haze action plans at your events for the safety of your participants and spectators.

4.    The PSI readings and health advisories are available on the NEA PSI page through the following channels:

a.    Weather@SG website
b.    NEA Twitter
c.    NEA Call Centre at 1800 CALL NEA (1800 2255 632)
d.    NEA myENV App on iPhone and Android
