WORK, HEALTH & SAFETY

At The Star Entertainment Group, the health and safety of our team members and our guests is paramount. We believe that everyone has a right to return home healthy and safely every day, and that everyone has a responsibility to care for themselves and those around them.

Our goals include eliminating work related injuries, illnesses and unsafe work practices and promoting the health and welfare of our team members. In FY2019 we continued to drive improvements in six key areas.

While we have continued to enhance our properties with significant construction activity,  we have worked closely with contractors to ensure minimal disruption to guests whilst ensuring a safe environment for all who work and play on our properties. In addition, we have continued to stage significant events without incident, which is evidence of our effective processes and fabulous teamwork.

Training sessions aimed at improving how we care for our team members in relation to injury prevention, reporting and management of workplace injuries have been delivered to more than 550 managers and supervisors.

The Group has also increased initiatives focussing on psychological safety. Mental Health Awareness training aimed at increasing our managers’ confidence and skills in identifying and supporting our team members with mental health issues has commenced. Wellness and coaching sessions incorporating principles of positive psychology are also now available to all team members through our enhanced Employee Assistance Program.

To achieve the Group’s goal of always working and playing safely, we will continue to focus on operational safety at the design stage of construction, assessing and managing risk when planning and executing building projects, managing our health and safety risk in a disciplined and consistent manner, and engaging our people to create a culture of consistently caring for ourselves and others.
