How to have a Safe Night Out

Updated: Jun 15, 2021

Going out after a long day at work is a must for some people. Having a good time around other people and socialising is a normal part of human behaviour. While this is not an issue, once you mix alcohol and illicit substances into this, you can have delayed responses and impaired cognitive function. This can lead to situations where you are unaware of your surroundings or you think you might be in danger.

While not everyone that goes out will consume these items, other people may consume these which could impact you if you were to come across them. It is a good idea that when you go to a new place you look for exit doors and where security is. This can be as simple as having a quick scan of a room or looking at an evacuation plan on the wall. Something as simple as this can be critical if you find yourself in a situation where you need to leave the building in a hurry or if you feel unsafe.

While people look at security in bars and clubs as the “fun police” or that they are just bouncers to kick you out if you get drunk that is not the case. People feel they cannot go to security with issues as they feel they might just get kicked out instead of security dealing with the issue. Security in licensed venues is there to keep people safe and to make sure that everyone has a good time.

If you are feeling unsafe or someone is trying to start an altercation with you, the best thing to do is approach bar staff or security and let them know what is happening. This makes it easier for security to identify the issue and deal with this appropriately. Whether it’s the form of a talking to of the person making you feel uncomfortable or removing someone who is trying to act aggressively towards you is down to how the other person reacts and the behaviour they have displayed up until that point.
