I found the audit very informative and extremely thorough.
While we may have contracts with companies and processes in place, we cannot rely on just these to mitigate risk and reduce claims. We also cannot rely on our regulating authorities to thoroughly check our processes.
The message to me through the audit was quite clear. The Responsibility of Public Safety and Injury prevention in Late licensed venues is with the Owner/License and his/her Staff
I would welcome a collaborative approach to addressing these areas of concern and would fully support that process. I firmly believe that this course of action would not only mitigate risk and reduce claims, it would also be better business all round.
