Update on haze situation

Please download the Haze Action Plan for more information.

Singapore has been affected by the haze conditions due to the smoke haze from Sumatra. As at 8pm last evening (8 Sep 2015), the 24-hr PSI was 92-106, in the high end of the Moderate range to the low end of the Unhealthy range and the 3-hr PSI was 130, in the Unhealthy range. Hazy conditions are expected to persist and  may further deteriorate if the winds are unfavourable.

The health impact of haze is dependent on one’s health status, the PSI level, and the length and intensity of outdoor activity. Reducing outdoor activities and physical exertion can help limit the ill effects from haze exposure. Persons who are not feeling well, especially the elderly and children, and those with chronic heart or lung conditions, should seek medical attention.

NSAs are strongly advised to check the NEA website (www.nea.gov.sg), the haze microsite (www.haze.gov.sg) or NEA Twitter (@NEAsg), or download the myENV app to monitor the PSI level and implement mitigating measures at your events or facility to ensure the safety of participants and spectators. Please refer to the table below as a general guide for the haze action plan. For any clarifications, feel free to contact Ms Delphine Fong (Director, Safety Management) at 65005357.
