Safety rating system discussion paper released
Safety Rating System - public consultation, Discussion paper
Industry, consumers and the community are asked to comment on a discussion paper about a safety rating system for licensed premises, just released by the NSW Government.
The Safety Rating System for Licensed Premises discussion paper, which identifies several issues for public consideration, is the start of a process of community consultation on a safety rating system.
There is significant community concern about the growing problem of anti-social behaviour and alcohol-related violence in the community. This is an issue that the NSW Government and the hotel and clubs industry are determined to effectively address together.
In late 2008, the Premier announced plans to develop a safety rating system that rewards safe practices by and good records of licensed premises.
The Safety Rating System For Licensed Premises discussion paper commences a process of community consultation on a safety rating system. It is the first step in a policy development process that will be undertaken in partnership between the Government, industry (including the Australian Hotels Association, NSW (AHA) and Clubs NSW), consumer representatives and the community.
The paper sets out why the Government is interested in generating community discussion on a safety rating system for hotels and clubs and identifies several potential options and issues for public consideration.
