RESPONSIBLE SERVICE OF ALCOHOL POLICY
In the best interest of it’s members, guests and the community we promote the responsible service or alcohol in our club at all times.
THE RESPONSIBLE SERVICE OF ALCOHOL
Responsible serving of alcohol is vital for legal, health and community reasons. Our society is not tolerant of the irresponsible use of alcohol that leads to drunkenness, drink driving and under age drinking. We are now far more aware of the serious problems that are associated with such behavior.
South Hurstville RSL Club has adopted the following strategies for the Responsible Service of Alcohol:
HOUSE POLICY providing the framework for the responsible serving of alcohol.
TRAINING OF STAFF so that they can implement and promote the house policy.
EDUCATION OF PATRONS so that they understand the implications of and abide by the responsible service of alcohol policy.
PREVENTION OF UNDER AGE DRINKING.
PROMOTING SAFE TRANSPORT OPTIONS
South Hurstville RSL Club will effect these strategies by:
Implementation, monitoring, and modification on an ongoing basis of the Club’s house policy.
Preventing under age drinking by insisting on “proof of age” by requesting a driver’s licence, passport or “proof of age card” issued by the NSW Roads and Traffic Authority.
Preventing intoxication by recognising the signs of intoxication and avoiding serving anyone to the point of intoxication. We will deny entry or service to anyone who is already intoxicated.
Managing intoxication, anti-social or disruptive patrons by attempting to discourage them from becoming involved in activities which can harm themselves or others.
We will promote the service of non-alcoholic beverages and food.
OUR RESPONSIBLE SERVING PRACTISES AIM TO:
Prevent under age drinking.
Prevent or manage intoxication and intoxicated behaviour.
Prevent or manage violent or disruptive behaviour.
Prevent drinking and driving.
INTOXICATED, VIOLENT OR QUARRELSOME BEHAVIOUR
It is the policy of this Club to not allow intoxicated, violent or quarrelsome behavior in or around our Club at any time.
We want all patrons to enjoy themselves. For many people alcohol is a pleasurable part of their daily life and we respect that. We are here to serve people with alcoholic beverages, professionally, courteously and responsibly. We will not allow people to drink to excess and place themselves, other patrons and the community at risk.
CHILDREN IN THE CLUB
Here at South Hurstville RSL we see ourselves as a family Club. In order to maintain this atmosphere, parents are requested to supervise their children at all times.
Children are to remain in the immediate company of the accompanying parent/adult at all times.
