BEING BAR READY FOR A CATASTROPHIC EVENT

March 09, 2017

Hospitality is about providing memorable, fun and valuable guest experiences.

This underlying ethos sits at the heart of what we all do.

When looking closely at your business, have you ever considered the unthinkable: a catastrophic event, a natural disaster, a gas explosion, or an extreme act of violence such as terrorism?

We call this analysis being Bar Ready.

Bar Ready is the ultimate in risk management (threat) assessment by considering and then preparing for those unlikely catastrophic events which seem to becoming more and more regular.

Responsible bar owner/manager's must in our view mitigate against the unthinkable by having wide ranging contingency plans in place to address certain situations; to not do so is being totally irresponsible.

To some this thought seems melodramatic, yet when looking at non-hospitality businesses there seems to be a desire to take risk assessment very seriously.

Whilst the probability of facing a freak emergency situation is mathematically low (good news!), we as managers, owners and facilitators must be realistic by recognising that the world is now a very different place.

Protecting guests, staff and neighbours is more than a responsibility. It’s an obligation.

Being Bar Ready needs to be taken seriously.
