Our Six Spells of Safety

To Protect the Magic, everyone at SEA LIFE Sydney applies our ‘Six Spells for Safety’. It's a simple step-by-step reminder of what everyone can do to help, whatever their role or responsibility.

  • Use your head: Think 'safety first' before starting every task 
  • Be on guard: Keep guests, colleagues and animals safe 
  • Do it right: Follow all safety rules and practices
  • Take a minute: Always keep your work area safe, secure and tidy 
  • Tell us now: Report anything unsafe, ask if you're ever unsure 
  • Help us all: Share your ideas for improving safety
