The Safety Consultation and Training Section (SCATS) of the State of Nevada’s Division of Industrial Relations recognizes two Boyd Gaming properties – Main Street Station Casino Brewery Hotel and California Hotel and Casino – for successful entry into the Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (SHARP). This is the first time these Boyd Gaming properties have earned this top safety honor.

Boyd Gaming partnered with SCATS consultants to develop its comprehensive employee safety program and strives toward continuous growth.

“Creating a safe environment for our team members and guests is a top priority for Boyd Gaming. We are proud of our Company’s long-standing partnership with Nevada SCATS that has helped us implement comprehensive safety programs and set the standard for excellence in workplace safety,” Andre Filosi, Vice President and General Manager of the California Hotel and Casino, Fremont Hotel and Casino and Main Street Station Casino Brewery Hotel.

Boyd Gaming is part of an elite group of businesses that have achieved SHARP status by maintaining exemplary health and safety protocols. Participation in the no-cost program provides incentives and support to employers to develop, implement and continuously improve programs at their worksite(s). By taking these proactive measures, businesses can reduce accident costs and ensure compliance with Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) regulations.

“Boyd Gaming is a committed safety leader within the casino industry. It’s an honor to support Nevada-based companies like this that ensure their employees return home safe and healthy every day,” Todd Schultz, Chief Administrative Officer for SCATS, said.

SCATS consultants provide employers with confidential hazard identification, program development, implementation assistance and training. Employers who implement effective safety programs and have a days-away restricted transfer (DART) rate below the national average for their industry may be recognized by SCATS. Successful SHARP participants may receive up to a three-year deferral from OSHA’s general schedule inspections.
