Six months in to the one year trial, the Three Cheers SASH (Special Alcohol Service Hospitality) Program is showing great results.
The Oxford Art Factory (OAF) in Darlinghurst, Sydney, have agreed to be the pilot venue for the trial with results being monitored by Professor Peter Miller and Doctor Nic Droste of Deakin University, Melbourne.
Incident register data from OAF shows that over the 6 months since SASH was implemented, the venue has recorded a combined 44% drop in incidents for; approaching intoxication, intoxication, aggression and violence, in comparison with the same time period from 2017.
The data shows a 43% drop in patrons approaching intoxication and a 66% drop in patrons reaching intoxication since SASH was put in place. Significantly there have been no violent incidents in the venue since SASH was implemented in comparison to 3 separate violent incidents over the same time period (Jan – Aug) in 2017.
This has all been achieved with no significant change to revenue.
Stay tuned for the final results from the year’s trial, with the report being expected to be released in April 2019.
