Safe environment

Canberra’s bar and serving staff are being encouraged by ACT Policing to not tolerate bullying and threats by unruly and noncompliant patrons as part of a concerted effort to create a safer environment for all employees working within licensed premises.

Everyone has the right to feel safe and secure in the workplace.

If licenced venue staff experience abuse or threats by a patron who is asked to leave or is intoxicated, they are encouraged to contact their manager immediately and call police. Police can issue Criminal Infringement Notices to patrons for unacceptable behaviour.
