SUSS Emergency Preparedness

SUSS Emergency Preparedness Programme aims to equip students with an understanding of the risk management process, and the skills and tools for risk mitigation when conducting any local and overseas field trips.

Students are required to read the SUSS Emergency Management System (EMS) Guide for Field Trips and complete/pass an online Risk Analysis and Management System (RAMS) quiz before embarking on any of the following SUSS Programmes:

  • Experiential Teambuilding Programme (ETB)*
  • Overseas Experiential Learning
  • Global Service Learning
  • Overseas Summer School
  • Local/ and Overseas Work Attachment
  • Overseas Exchange Programmes
  • Overseas Competitions or Challenges
  • Any other overseas programmes endorsed or organized by SUSS

The online quiz is designed to:

  • Familiarise students with SUSS Emergency Management System (EMS)
  • Equip students with basic skills and knowledge to identify potential risks associated with their overseas travel
  • Raise student's awareness in the mitigating strategies to reduce risk

The EMS guide is a useful resource to help prepare for your field trips. A copy of the EMS guide can be downloaded here. Students who have yet to complete the online RAMS Quiz and require it for overseas travel or Work Attachment, please email the Office of Student Life

*The Online RAMS Quiz has been integrated as a learning objective with the Experiential Teambuilding Programme (ETB). All students who have attended and achieved a PASS on any ETB course would have PASSED the Online RAMS Quiz.
