The SMU Safety Centre fosters a safe culture and environment for the SMU community. It is managed by the Safety and Emergency Preparedness (SEP) team, who conducts training on safety management systems, develops and reviews safety SOPs and performance standards, and provides guidance and advice on crisis and safety management matters.

The SEP team also engages with external authorities and surrounding communities to heighten organisational resilience and security, in alignment with the national SGSecure movement.
