The award was made following a full evaluation of the venues and activities by INIA Chief Executive Barry O’Sullivan and an independent auditor from the insurance industry. The evaluation examines the nightclub in key operational areas of fire safety, risk management, security management, noise control, crowd control, and responsible serving of alcohol.
The award builds on the long-established success of both Halo and Central Park as safe and popular venues for people to socialise.
Alan Connolly accepted the award on behalf of Halo and Central Park, commenting, “We were delighted to be a part of the pilot phase of NightSafe and helped shape the models of best practice as part of the initiative. We are very happy now to achieve the NightSafe award as recognition for all the hard work our team puts into ensuring our customers nights out are safe, and sociable.“
Barry O’Sullivan commented,“ Both of these clubs are rightly held us as examples of best practice; they are exemplary and it is clear that they take the business of socialising very seriously “.
