safety certification and training for the night time economy.

keep your customers safe and help your business thrive with the egalitarian safe place project.

we're a community-led enterprise offering training and certification for night-time businesses that take safety seriously.

we're passionate about making nights out as safe as possible, working with venues to ensure the night-out community is protected, specifically. being experienced both as previous employees and current customers in the night-time economy, we are all too aware of issues of harassment, assault, violence, discrimination and victim blaming within the industry and of the ways to tackle it.

in October 2021 we created the first publicly viewable spiking incident database, Spike Report, in light of the development of spiking by injection. we have exclusive insight into the prevalence of spiking.
