NightSafe evaluates nightclubs against objective criteria in key operational areas such as fire safety, risk management, security management, noise control, crowd control and responsible serving of alcohol. The evaluation process is undertaken by the INIA’s Barry O’Sullivan together with an independent assessor from the insurance industry.
Darren Kavanagh, who accepted the award on behalf of his team in the Palace, commented, “We had to invest a lot of time, money and work to satisfy all of the criteria. We are absolutely delighted to have completed the process and to get the award”.
INIA Chief Executive Barry O’Sullivan added, “Meath and indeed Leinster has some excellent nightclubs and we hope more of them will follow in the pioneering footsteps of the Palace and apply for the NightSafe award.
“The initiative is about setting and raising standards and every nightclub will benefit from taking part.”
