An employee, who declined to be named, said they have been protesting for the last week over wage disputes with management. The employee, who has worked at the casino for the last 13 years, said staff had not been paid their 13th cheque last year. Management has not bothered to budge," he said.
The employee added that the company also wanted to roll out a unilateral agreement on workers' contracts stating they could make changes to contracts without prior consultation with the employer. They also want to be able to make our 13th cheques discretionary - no reasons given.
We previously had family responsibility and compassionate leave but now they want to combine and reduce it," he said. They took them to the Durban Central police station but they were never charged. After a few hours, they were released. It's like they are trying to intimidate us," the worker said.
We conducted a narrative literature review of U. Following a multi-step process, a total of 11 articles were identified that related to the occupational health and safety of U. Our results demonstrate that the overwhelming consensus in the literature is that ETS leads to high respirable particulate matter PM2. Our results also suggest that harassment, low autonomy at work, and unsafe work conditions may be of concern, especially for female workers.
We identified major gaps in the casino worker occupational safety literature including a lack of studies that evaluated noise exposure, injury data, ergonomics, psychosocial hazards, or long term respiratory health outcomes related to ETS exposure. Future research regarding the occupational safety and health of U.
Casino gambling has become a ubiquitous form of entertainment and revenue for individual states in the United States. As a result, casinos have also become a major employer. In , more than , people were directly employed by commercial casinos nationwide and 24 states had commercial casinos .
The relationship between a casino and the surrounding community holds the potential for tension. Casinos provide a means of employment, a source of tax revenue, and entertainment for local residents as well as tourists. The casino industry serves as major source of revenue to state and local economies as well as nearby businesses. While some research is inconclusive on the connection between casinos and crime in neighboring communities e.
While the economic impact of creating jobs and stimulating the economy is often a driving force behind the introduction of casinos  , the benefits of casino gambling must be considered within the context of potential harms. For example, what is the quality of casino jobs and what are the occupational health exposures experienced by employees in a casino environment?
Much of the research on the occupational safety and health of casino or gaming workers has been conducted in foreign settings. Some stressors experienced by casino workers in the extant research are similar to those confronted by other hospitality workers, such as job insecurity, shift work, and the emotional strain of managing stressful customers while maintaining a calm, friendly demeanor  , .
Other factors, however, are unique to the gaming environment. In addition to physical and psychosocial stressors found in international research, gaming workers are at risk of adopting behaviors to which they are exposed at the workplace, including problem or pathological gambling e. A study conducted in Queensland, Australia found that problem gambling rates among gaming venue staff were 9. As previously mentioned, much of the research that has assessed the physical and psychological occupational health exposures of casino workers has focused on foreign settings, particularly major gaming hubs such as Queensland, Austria and Macao, China.
However, due to labor laws, social policies, and gaming regulations that vary internationally, an assessment of the job conditions and occupational health hazards specific to the U. To this end, this narrative literature review seeks to identify the physical and psychosocial occupational health hazards and exposures experienced by U.
Studies were initially selected based on the following criteria: 1 focused on workers, 2 provided information pertaining to exposures present in the occupational environment e. The inclusion criteria were refined after the initial search to include those articles that possessed these three criteria and were also conducted in the U. Search strategies were developed in collaboration with a research librarian and included terms related to the concepts of casino workers and occupational health and safety.
A combination of keyword and subject term searching was used to maximize relevance and retrieval in each database. No language or publication date restrictions were applied. Grey literature was searched to identify dissertations using the ProQuest Dissertations and Theses database; conference proceedings were identified using Scopus.
A total of 1, articles were retrieved from the initial search, which was reduced to 1, after deduplication. An additional article  that matched the selection criteria was later identified by the team and added to the list of eligible articles for a total of 1, One team member reviewed the title and abstracts of the 1, articles and removed those that did not meet the initial criteria, leaving 38 articles.
Following the first review, two team members reviewed the title, abstract, and text when necessary, for final determination of inclusion. The second review, which included the additional criteria of being conducted in the U. The final set of 11 publications represented work from 9 research teams see Figure 1. The 11 articles retained from our literature review fell into three broad categories of casino-related occupational hazards: 1 those pertaining to environmental tobacco smoke seven publications , 2 those pertaining to casino worker risk behaviors two publications , and 3 those pertaining to psychosocial stressors two publications.
The specific details of each study can be found in Table 2. Here we summarize the results of these tables by major exposure type. These studies evaluated ETS in the casino through a variety of exposure metrics, including: Respirable particulate matter PM2. Sampling methods to evaluate worker ETS particulate exposures levels included area sampling and breathing zone sampling 1 study , measured pre- and post-smoking ban reductions in particulate levels 1 study , indoor versus outdoor particulate level comparisons at smoking casinos 3 studies , and comparisons between smoking and non-smoking casino particulate levels 2 studies.
Exposures of specific worker types were isolated to dealers and supervisors. Dealer exposure to nicotine vapor particulate in worker breathing zones was examined by two studies  ,  , one of which also measured supervisor nicotine vapor exposure . In addition to nicotine vapor, Auchutan et al. Variation in particulate concentrations by region of the casino was evaluated by three studies.
Jiang et al. Non-smoking areas gambling and restaurant areas of smoking casinos were generally found to be lower in particulates than smoking areas, yet higher than outdoors  ,  — . Cotinine was a prevalent ETS worker exposure metric in the literature we reviewed. Four studies ultilized cotinine: Achutan et al. Two studies identified by our review  ,  focused on casino worker risk behaviors, including problem gambling and problem drinking see Table 2.
These studies concluded that the prevalence of problem gambling and drinking is higher among casino workers than the general population. In fact, one study  found that casino workers were more likely to be pathological gamblers 2.
Longer tenure as a casino worker was related to pathological gambling in this study, while working in the gaming part of the casino was not. The second study, Shaffer and Hall  , examined changes in gambling and drinking behaviors among casino workers and found little change in gambling addiction over time, yet females exhibited a reduction in drinking habits while males did not. This study did not examine variation in work-related gambling and drinking exposure over the same time period, nor were any occupational factors included in analyses aside from direct involvement with gaming, years working for Casino Inc.
Consequently, associations between occupational factors and risk behaviors over time are difficult to assess. Both studies used questionnaire assessment of factors related to gambling and drinking problems with assistance and funding from casinos. Although differences in gambling addiction were assessed for gaming versus non-gaming workers, more specific job information e. Stedham and Mitchell  found that sexual harassment from co-workers and casino management may be a significant occupational health hazard for female casino workers and that dealers may be most susceptible to harassment see Table 2.
Further, employees that experience work-related sexual harrassment were less satisfied with their jobs, work, and supervisor, as well as less committed to the organization, though they were not more likely to quit. This suggests that these workers may feel obligated to tolerate harassing behavior and perceive it as part of the job. A second study by Jones and Chandler  focused exclusively on female casino workers and noted that they may be at risk for unique occupational exposures and subsequent adverse effects.
The authors included descriptive results suggesting that female casino workers may be subject to exposures unique to traditionally female casino jobs, such as hotel cleaning and cocktail serving. These jobs may promote exposure to chemicals and awkward, prolonged work postures resulting in respiratory illness and musculoskeletal pain, respectively.
Five of the 11 studies in our review explicitly noted voluntary casino management participation in coordinating the research  ,  ,  — . Two of the ETS studies reviewed one continental U. Generally, among the studies reviewed, most PM2. The two problem gambling studies we reviewed involved cooperation with management and these studies were funded by the casinos in which they were conducted  , .
One study in our review that investigated sexual harassment involved casino management assistance  , while our sole qualitative study of occupational safety issues among female casino workers did not involve casino management . Findings from this narrative review reveal that, by far, the most closely studied occupational health issue among U.
In fact, seven of the 11 articles that were captured through the review process focused on ETS. All articles concluded that ETS in casinos increased respirable particulate levels and three of these articles verified ETS exposure with biological methods of exposure assessment. However, our results show that, in general, a more detailed assessment of worker exposure to ETS is needed than what exists in the literature to date.
For example, cotinine, used by only three of the seven ETS studies, may provide an important assessment of biological exposure to ETS, in addition to area and breathing zone sampling. Furthermore, the assessment of tobacco incineration constituents, such as polyromantic hydrocarbons, volatile organic compounds, and aldehydes, was conducted by only one study in our review.
These ETS constituents, as well as associated worker respiratory health impacts, may help refine assessment of worker exposures to ETS. Finally, none of the studies identified by our review examined worker respiratory health through pulmonary function testing, yet such testing may be useful in detecting undiagnosed lung disease and poor lung function.
The focus of many of our reviewed studies on ETS in the casino work environment may reflect the fact that smoking bans in public places have not been issued on a federal level but are the purview of state and local jurisdictions. In many instances, smoking bans that apply to other public places or workplaces may exclude casinos or gaming venues  , due to an argument that mandating non-smoking facilities may harm revenues .
Further, tribal casinos are not subject to the prevailing smoking laws or regulations in the surrounding areas and may allow or restrict smoking at their discretion. As casinos across the country find ways to circumvent these regulations, whether by creating smoking terraces, cigar lounges, or investing in supplemental ventilation that may enable indoor smoking sections  , a well-founded knowledge of the effects of these practices on the workers and other patrons is crucial for creating policies that protect workers and the public.
Our review of the literature suggests that, in some cases, overflow of second hand smoke from the smoking section to non-smoking sections may occur, illustrating the importance of assessing exposure and associated health impacts among casino workers in various areas of the casino to ensure that casinos' responses to non-smoking regulations are actually effective.
Two of the articles in our review focused on risk behaviors and gambling disorders among casino workers  , . Though the studies on the topic are few in number, the results mirror findings from international studies that found that casino workers are more likely to abuse alcohol, smoke tobacco, and be pathological gamblers than the general population .
The reasons for this heightened prevalence have not been delineated in the U. Thus, exposure to risk behaviors, as an inherent part of casino work, may be considered an occupational exposure to be assessed and mitigated. Future studies may benefit from quantifying worker exposure to problem gambling, variation in problem gambling exposure among casino job types, and subsequent impacts on worker behavior.
Two articles in the review focused on psychosocial stressors and found that women and table game dealers were most impacted by psychosocial stress as an occupational hazard  , . Findings pertaining to harassment highlighted that for women in particular, casino jobs may be sexualized.
While one article found that workers in casinos are no more likely to perceive workplace sexual harassment than other workers, this may be due in part to workers' perception that harassment is expected due to the sexualized nature of their jobs . Despite this, workers who perceived sexual harassment from coworkers were less satisfied with their jobs, believed managers were ineffective and unfair, and did not feel their employer cared about their well-being. They were not, however, more likely to leave their jobs, indicating that these workers may not feel they have other options .
It should be noted that this study only probed for harassment initiated by coworkers rather than patrons, which is another potential source of harassment that workers may face. Another U. These studies suggest that future research on casino workers should include sexual harassment measures from both coworkers and clients, quantify the level of harassment experienced from each source, and examine resultant worker effects from each source.
Although ergonomics and noise exposure are commonly documented in occupational safety research in other industries, no U. S, casino workers. Evidence from international research suggests that these hazards are problematic for worker health in the casino environment . Furthermore, gaming workers from other countries have cited exposure to poor ergonomics; chemical hazards e. Also, casino workers in other countries have complained of pain in the lower back, shoulder, joint, neck and head, hearing loss; eye strain; respiratory and reproductive issues; and ill-health and injuries .
Only one study was found that assessed physical symptoms experienced by workers, which found that women casino workers experienced back strain, sore feet, and knee problems . No studies were found that quantified or described common injuries e. Further more, no studies examined the impact of psychosocial stressors on worker health such as unpredictable, unstable, or long work hours.
These missing exposures and related injuries are likely present in U. The findings from this review indicate that an assessment of U. Other research on job satisfaction of casino dealers has revealed that characteristics of the work environment such as distrustful supervisor relationships, a high supervisor-to-employee ratio, low job security, and low autonomy conspired to create low job satisfaction .
Workers in lower income communities may be vulnerable to adverse effects from job hazards as they may feel they have few job options and are willing to take on more risky and less desirable jobs. Future research must also determine if these casino jobs add true value to the communities in which they are situated.
For example, the National Opinion Research Center  found that when casinos entered a community, per capita income tended to stay the same despite the increased jobs brought by the casino. This finding indicated that the jobs brought to the community were not necessarily better and therefore left no improvement in the standard of living.
Access to the casino workforce seems to be the key issue in future studies of casino worker health and safety. Many studies in our review evaluated respiratory hazards discreetly in casinos, while few involved casino management. Both studies that looked at problem gambling among casino workers involved industry support  , .
As over half of the studies in our review did not work with casinos to perform research this may suggest that casinos are reluctant to work with researchers. Because management cooperation is crucial to worker access and in-depth exposure assessment, bridging this gap of trust—e. Our review demonstrates the need for additional studies that focus on female casino workers. Many women in the casino workforce are non-English speaking immigrant Latinos, a group with a heightened rate of occupational injury .
As such, female casino workers may be at risk for exposure and injury while on the job. Furthermore, many casino jobs are dominated by females, such as beverage servers and cleaning staff, which may have unique hazards. Our results show, in particular, that casino hotel cleaning staff may be subject to fast-paced schedules with limited breaks, low pay, and tasks that may have an adverse impact on musculoskeletal and respiratory health.
Furthermore, beverage servers may be subject to harassment from both patrons and casino co-workers and may experience musculoskeletal issues related to mandates to wear high heel shoes during long shifts with constant standing and walking . Findings from this review also indicate that job type may impact the risk of worker exposure to specific casino related hazards.
Furthermore, the study we reviewed pertaining to sexual harassment from co-workers  revealed that female dealers may be most susceptible. In addition, the qualitative study we reviewed  suggested female cleaning workers may experience job-specific hazards unique to cleaning. However, the two studies we reviewed on problem gambling  ,  yielded no associations between workers directly involved with gaming and problem gambling. These findings demonstrate a need for further identification and quantification of job-specific exposures and associated worker effects.
This study reports a narrative review of articles retained by our search, which, due to a non-statistical approach to results summary, may make our findings subject to bias. Furthermore, it may be possible that misleading titles and abstracts may have led to missed articles that were relevant.
However, the number of missed or eliminated relevant articles is likely minimal, as subsequent topic searches revealed only one additional article. We found a surprising paucity of articles related to the occupational safety of U. This lack of extant literature underscores the importantce future studies examining the occupational health and safety of U. Although our literature search did reveal a number of articles about non-U. Nonetheless, future studies comparing U.
Despite the limitations of this study, our narrative review of occupational hazards experienced by U. Additional research is needed in order to systematically characterize occupational hazards, assess exposure levels, and assess the resultant health impacts on U. Indeed, prominent gaps in the U. Research on casino worker risk behaviors that may be motivated by aspects of the work environment e. The U. Yet, with cooperation between the industry and researchers, casino worker health and safety may be better understood and improved.
The cutoff date for the satellite casino will be at the end of this month after which time, the affected staff will receive a dismissal letter within seven days if they refuse to resign, said Chao. The affected employees do not want to disclose the name of their employer as they believe they would be let go immediately without any room for negotiation, stressed Chao. Chao told the Times, after delivering the letter to the DSAL, that the dislodgement decision was made solely by the satellite casino and has nothing to with its parent company.
DSAL authorities will reach out to the concessionaire to discuss possible solutions as the employment contracts of the affected staff are legally bound to the conglomerate, she added. Almost all concerned staff are relatively new to the company, and have been employed at the satellite casino for no more than three years.

The Nevada Gaming Control Board divides Clark County , which is coextensive with the Las Vegas metropolitan area, into seven market regions for reporting purposes. Native American gaming has been responsible for a rise in the number of casinos outside of Las Vegas and Atlantic City. Given the large amounts of currency handled within a casino, both patrons and staff may be tempted to cheat and steal, in collusion or independently; most casinos have security measures to prevent this.
Security cameras located throughout the casino are the most basic measure. Modern casino security is usually divided between a physical security force and a specialized surveillance department. The physical security force usually patrols the casino and responds to calls for assistance and reports of suspicious or definite criminal activity.
A specialized surveillance department operates the casino's closed circuit television system, known in the industry as the eye in the sky. Both of these specialized casino security departments work very closely with each other to ensure the safety of both guests and the casino's assets, and have been quite successful in preventing crime. When it opened in , The Mirage was the first casino to use cameras full-time on all table games. In addition to cameras and other technological measures, casinos also enforce security through rules of conduct and behavior; for example, players at card games are required to keep the cards they are holding in their hands visible at all times.
Over the past few decades, casinos have developed many different marketing techniques for attracting and maintaining loyal patrons. Many casinos use a loyalty rewards program used to track players' spending habits and target their patrons more effectively, by sending mailings with free slot play and other promotions. Casinos have been linked to organised crime , with early casinos in Las Vegas originally dominated by the American Mafia   and in Macau by Triad syndicates.
According to some police reports, local incidence of reported crime often doubles or triples within three years of a casino's opening. It has been said that economic studies showing a positive relationship between casinos and crime usually fail to consider the visiting population: they count crimes committed by visitors but do not count visitors in the population measure, which overstates the crime rate.
Part of the reason this methodology is used, despite the overstatement, is that reliable data on tourist count are often not available.
