Sign-up for free training on preventing drinks spiking

Malibu is offering customers free training to Stamp Out Spiking as part of its latest campaign, Malibu B.A.B.E.S, a brand-new spiking safety protocol that empowers friends to watch out for each other on nights out.

Fronted by West End star Amber Davies and influencer Munya Chawawa, Malibu is working with anti-spiking charity Stamp Out Spiking to train 2,000 festival, bar, club, convenience staff and consumers on what to do in a spiking situation.

The new five step protocol is easy to remember: if a spiking happens to one of your faves, remember B.A.B.E.S:

1. Buddy Up – Stay with your friend
2. Alert Staff – Speak to bar or door staff for assistance
3. Be Chatty – Keep your friend talking
4. Emergency Call – Call 999
5. Switch to Water – Sip water, not alcohol

Research conducted by Malibu identified that 73% people don’t know what to do in a spiking situation, 65% of 18–25-year-olds have noticed an increase in spikings since the pandemic, and 70% of victims felt vulnerable on nights out when spikings occurred and didn’t know where to turn for help.

Malibu want to change this by partnering with Stamp Out Spiking, a registered charity established to tackle the increasing incidents of spiking, which includes a £20,000 donation and training for 2,000 staff from bars, clubs and convenience stores across the UK.

Malibu has also partnered with the drinks business to offer 200 places on the training to Stamp Out Spiking.
