EPIC Risk Management, a consultancy for gambling harm, announced that it had reached an agreement to provide education programs on safer gambling to the employees of Tabcorp, Australia’s largest gambling operator.
Help reduce gambling harm risk
EPIC Risk Management will provide executive training, gambling harm awareness, and its ‘Interactions Masterclass’ program to Tabcorp employees. Tabcorp is the third-largest gambling operator in Asia and the largest worldwide.
Martin Bland, EPIC Risk Management’s director of Business Development, welcomed the new project and explained the critical role of the gambling harm consulting as it would offer its expertise to Tabcorp’s workforce, which exceeds 5,000, to help the operator “significantly reduce the likelihood of gambling-related injury occurring.”
Bland stated, “We look forward to starting our working relationship with Tabcorp and trust we will provide some key assistance in relation to player protection within the organization.”
EPIC Risk Management is a partnership that provides education, training, and consultancy to minimize gambling-related harm and enhance player protection. EPIC Risk Management has partnered with many organizations in the gambling, horseracing, and sports industries.
The consultancy continues to promote awareness in the most at-risk areas of gambling harm. Around half of EPIC’s employees have had to deal with serious gambling harm.
Expanding Presence in the Area
Tabcorp’s partnership is a significant step in the growth of the consultancy. It recently spoke at IAGR 2022 in Melbourne. The company also hosted a discussion about minimizing gambling harm with representatives from nearly every sports league and governing body in Australia.
EPIC Risk Management has already established partnerships with Cricket New South Wales (NSW Cricket Association), a trading body that provides facilitators for lived experiences to share their gambling harm stories to both women’s and men’s players on a regular basis.
EPIC Risk Management, in collaboration with the University Campus of Football Business’s Global Institute of Sport, is continuing to prepare for the upcoming summit in the region on gambling harm prevention.
On February 8, the summit will be held at Wembley Stadium. It will host C-level executives and player welfare specialists representing major sports leagues, leagues, and the gambling sector.
