University of Singapore (NUS) have joined in partnership to develop a web-based
Hazard Repository, which will include a Sports Injury Database to help monitor, manage

NUS will also capture data from all safety related incidents, including near-miss
incidents.

Jin Teik, Chief Executive Officer, SSC, and Professor Barry Halliwell, Deputy President
(Research & Technology), NUS, in the launch of the Safety Studies Initiative (SSI) to set
