BE SAFER AT WORK
Safe Bars: De-Escalation for Hospitality Staff is now open for registration. Join us to learn de-escalation skills for dealing with people who refuse to wear a mask, spew blatant racism or sexism, are out-of-control angry, or otherwise creating problems for you at work. Presented with Focus on Health and Defend Yourself.
And we’re offering Safe Bars establishment trainings as well as Train the Trainers online! Please contact us if you’re interested.
We’re deeply saddened by the consequences of the pandemic for hospitality and the suffering of so many involved in the industry. Please let us know how you’d like us to support you.

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
