Safety Resources

Safety Resources

The SEP Team has prepared various documents to assist SMU students, faculty and staff in their planning for the safety aspects of events, activities and overseas trips.

Being prepared is essential to ensuring safety in all our activities.  The SEP Team has developed the GO PREPARED model for Event Planning which organisers can refer to during the planning and preparation stages of events.  The document then compiles key safety templates into one document to facilitate the submission of key safety information to the SEP Team.  These templates include the RAMS form (RAMS), the Emergency Action Plan (EAP) and Participants’ Information.  Do note that while this set of the documents may be comprehensive, it is not exhaustive, so please contact the SEP Team if further assistance is needed.

  •  GO PREPARED Document​​Incorporates key safety templates in one location to facilitate the submission of safety proposals to the SEP Team.  It includes the RAMS form, the Emergency Action Plan (EAP) and Participants’ Information templates, and includes user notes and checklist to aid in event planning and information sourcing.

The following templates are also available for use if needed.
