Media Release | By | 16 Dec 2022 | 2 minute read

The Australian Open is set to join forces with SafetyCulture once again, as the innovative Australian tech company comes on board for its second year as the Official Workplace Operations Partner.

“For several years now, SafetyCulture has supported our operations team with much of the behind-the-scenes effort required to bring the Australian Open to life. We’re delighted that they will continue to help us improve our game off the court and help support our ongoing initiatives to grow the Australian Open” said Craig Tiley, Australian Open Tournament Director. 

“Tennis Australia shares SafetyCulture’s passion for the role that technology can play in improving processes, outcomes and experiences. Together we’re working towards delivering what we hope will be the biggest AO yet.”

Tennis Australia has set an ambitious target of 900,000 fans through the gates at Melbourne Park over the three weeks of the tournament.

SafetyCulture’s technology has been used by Tennis Australia for a wide range of operational activities since 2017, including improving court servicing, general safety checks, training ballkids and contractor onboarding. 

SafetyCulture’s micro-training product, EdApp, will also be used across several functional areas, including online training for the 300+ AO Ballkids and retail staff members. SafetyCulture’s tech has already enabled the team to complete over 14,000 training courses. 

“The Australian Open is an incredible sporting event that puts the best of Australian entertainment and hospitality on the world’s stage. We couldn’t ask for a better opportunity to showcase what our tech can do,” said Luke Anear, SafetyCulture’s CEO and Founder.

“The team that delivers the AO are the best in the world at what they do. As the official Workplace Operations Partner, we’re incredibly proud that we get to support them to deliver a world-class tournament and that we get to work with Tennis Australia right throughout the year”.
