What is a safer nightlife label?

A safer nightlife Label is developped to reward a club complying with official standards of quality and to indicate to consumers the quality of the service provided.

A safer nightlife Charter is an official document signed by clubs, party organizers, cities and NGOs recognizing common objectives and specifying commitments to improve health and security in clubs and parties .

In each community, there will be variations in the nightlife regulation, the settings of the venues and the risks taken by the partygoers, but labels and charters can reduce these risks by implementing standards such as :

  • Accessibility to health promotion material and information (examples: leaflets, condoms, ear plugs).
  • Improvement in the infrastructure to reduce risks such as dehydration (example : access to free fresh water).
  • The training of the parties’ professionals (examples: first-aid, information about drugs or law, non-violent communication, noise pollution, etc.)

For a club owner or a party organizer, a Label is the recognition of the attention he pays to the well-being and health of his public. It gives them a positive image and can support them in case of crisis situation to reduce juridical risks.

For a partygoer, it’s the guarantee of a quality venue to party in a safer way.

For an administration or a health NGO, it’s a participative and sustainable methodology to reduce risks related to nightlife.
