Support for Cronulla Sharks

Sharks team at Southern Cross Group Stadium

Taking place at Southern Cross Group stadium on Thursday 2nd March, the Cronulla Sharks took on the Brisbane Broncos in an epic display of courage and energy. We were there to cheer them on as they took to Round 1 with heart and spirit. Hot off the back of their 2016 premiership win, the club’s first and only premiership win, our black, white and blue boys came out strong, eager to continue their winning streak. Despite all their efforts, the Broncos narrowly proved to be the better team on the night, finishing on top with a score of 26 to 18. Southern Cross Group will be supporting the Sharks all the way in the 2017 season!

Happy New Year 2017 Wishes

Happy New Year 2017

Southern Cross Group Wishes you a Happy & Prosperous New Year 2017!!
Make workplace safety as your 2017 resolution. As we head back to work place or school after some time off for the season holidays, many of us have made resolutions to make the 2017 as our best year yet. The four most Safety tips are below.

Holiday Safety with Ken Barlow

Holiday Tips to Stay Safe and Reduce Hazard

As the festive season approaches our thoughts are often diverted from the mundane tasks of work and injuries are far from our mind, however Christmas has its own unique injury statistics. The four (4) most common being:

Burns: Burns happen too often during the festive season, from kitchen accidents through to candles and accidental fires from BBQ’s, spits and open fires. To prevent burns when cooking use kitchen mitts, never leave cooking food unattended, and that also goes for candles. Make sure you don’t overload power points particularly around natural timber Christmas trees.

Falls: Falls are very common at Christmas due to our desire to have the biggest and best decorated trees and our houses covered with fairy lights. Statistically Emergency Departments treat over 17,000 falls nationally over a 10-day period. To prevent falls use ladders correctly, use spotters when working at heights, and decorate trees and houses when sober.

Asphyxiation:  With the amount of food being ingested and the small trinkets that kids get their hands on, it’s no wonder that asphyxiation is one of the biggest injuries during the holidays. Asphyxiation is a serious concern for families with small children and caution should be taken to make sure all your holiday decorations are baby-proofed. As tempting as it is to wolf down those holiday meals, make sure you take your time to chew and swallow properly so you don’t choke on your food.

Car Accidents: Traditionally the Christmas/New Year period demonstrates the highest levels of accidents and fatalities with the Police forces throughout the country focussing on the road safety campaign. While we may well have heeded the message of drink-driving, fatigue is also a catalyst for serious injuries and fatalities. To overcome these issues, use the 2/10 principal (for every 2 hours of driving take 10 minutes break away from the car). Remember to drink ample hydrating fluids and share the driving tasks with another person.

Remember these tips and take care over the holiday period to avoid becoming a statistic

Sharks Win!

In what will go down as one of the most memorable days in the club’s history, October 2nd marked the Cronulla-Sutherland Shark’s first NRL Premiership victory. Having had a taste of the Grand Finals in 1973, 1978 and 1997, the Premiership trophy had always seemed to elude the club, who had failed to secure a grand final win since its inception in 1967. But that all changed in 2016 when, off the back of an impressive winning streak, the Sharks found a place in the finals against NRL stalwarts, Melbourne Storm. Despite the Shark’s strong display in the first half, the final game seemed to hang in the balance with a determined Storm looking to steal victory from our black, white and blue boys yet again. In the face of their best efforts, the Sharks remained strong and held fast to the very end, emerging victorious by a slim margin of two points.

As major sponsors of the Sharks home ground, Southern Cross Group Stadium, we couldn’t be happier with the result. Congratulations on your first Premiership triumph, Sharkies. We’re sure there’s plenty more to come!
