SAFER AT WORK
During the pandemic and re-opening, hospitality professionals are facing patrons who refuse to wear a mask, spew blatant racism or sexism, are out-of-control angry, or otherwise creating problems in bars, restaurants, and other hospitality spaces.
Safe Bars can help with de-escalation skills for keeping yourself, your co-workers, and your patrons safe.
We’re also offering trainings online: active bystander skills as well as train the trainer sessions for starting new Safe Bars programs wherever you are!
We’re deeply saddened by the consequences of the pandemic for hospitality and the suffering of so many in the industry.
Please contact us if we can support you in any way.
Welcome to Safe Bars! Safe Bars uses innovative bystander education strategies to empower D.C.-area bar, restaurant, and club staff to stand up against sexual harassment and assault.

Everyone at Hank’s knows that they’re part of a community where they do the important work of caring for our guests. The Safe Bars training helped show us how this work influences our community writ large here in the DC area. Safe Bars is starting important conversations on how we can work together to make our communities — small and large — safe and welcoming for people of all backgrounds and identities.” – Jamie Leeds, chef and owner at Hank’s Oyster Bar
