On 20 January 2019, the one year trial of the Three Cheers SASH Program at the Oxford Art Factory (OAF) was completed and we’re all very happy with how it went.
Incident register data from (20 Jan ’17 – 20 Jan ’18) compared with incident register data from (20 Jan ’18 – 20 Jan ’19) show total incidents are down 56% in 2018 from 2017 figures;
Approaching Intoxication down 55%, Intoxication down 75%, Violence down 500%, Aggression down 80%.
There was a 5% increase in bar revenue in 2018 showing that the improved data statistics were not the result of a downturn in trade and indicate that the SASH program is of overall benefit to venue revenue.
OAF management (General Manager / Licensee, Bar Manager, Assistant Bar Manager and Head of Security) interviews reveal improvement in; hospitality patrons experience, enjoyment of staff in their roles, local amenity, relationships between staff and patrons.
