Lowering the risk of nightclub incidents, and how to make an accident at work compensation if you are injured
As nightclub staff, whether you are a manager, employee or door staff, you should all be working together to ensure that not only are customers safe, but also that staff are as well. Staff are likely to be happier and more productive, and you are likely to have a far lower staff turnover, if you can ensure their safety whilst they are working.
Nightclubs can be dangerous places, owing to the high number of people there, alcohol and drug misuse and so on. Here are some tips for lowering the possibility of incidents in your nightclub, so that staff and customers can feel safe.
- More staff. The more staff there are working in a nightclub, the more people there are working together to ensure that there are no accidents or incidents. It can be expensive to have a lot of staff working together in a nightclub on the same nights, but it may be the safest way to go on the busiest nights, such as weekends.
- Choose plastic over glass. Some clubs have this at the weekends, or for outside areas. However, for total safety, it may be better to just have plastic glasses and bottles throughout the club. Not only does this prevent them being used as weapons, it also prevents accidents with accidental breakages.
- Know who the customers are. Many clubs are now employing a system where people sign in using their ID to get into the club. Customers are less likely to cause trouble knowing that their face is on the system, and it is also easier to ensure that they are barred if something does happen.
- Have regular cleaning. Even on the busiest nights, have a couple of members of staff going around with mops and collecting glasses so that things don’t pile up an cause clutter which could lead to accidents.
