Singapore uses the British plug, BS 1363. It is an extremely safe electrical plug in its latest version. The earth connects first, and the live and neutral plugs are insulated near the plug to ensure that bare metal can't be touched with the plug partly inserted. The live and neutral outlets has a shutter that is only opened when the earth prong is inserted into the socket.
