Heat Stress Management Plan For Sport Fraternity – Singapore

Organization: Sport Singapore

Year: 2024

Since 2016, the Homefront (i.e., ministries/statutory boards) has relied on a Heatwave Contingency Plan that was based on temperatures reaching up to 35°C over a prolonged period.  However, learning from the severity of 2022’s heatwave episodes in Europe and China and more severe climate change projections, MSE has formed a workgroup comprising representatives from MOE, MOH, MOM, NEA, MCCY, PA, SportSG, to review and align contingency plans for the Homefront. SportSG has since updated the Heat Stress Management Plan for reference and use by the sports fraternity.
