Safety Den 2019 Winner – Gemstone Care Centre

January 26, 2023 | Safety Den

Taking home the top prize of $1000, Gemstone created a culture of safety within the care home with the Safety Star Program. Safety Stars are members of staff who pledge to do whatever they can to create a safe work environment. Donning a yellow lanyard, Safety Stars are given input in decision-making and are involved in workplace inspections and risk assessments. Safety Stars are given leverage to act on unsafe incidents they witness with their peers, giving them an opportunity to teach without coming across as critics. Gemstone’s goal is to get every employee to be a Safety Star.
