Being smart for your Business and Employees
Many of the holiday functions we will be hosting and attending this holiday season will probably involve the serving of alcohol. It's a wonderful time of the year to come together and celebrate and enjoy gatherings and festivities.
What Steps to Take
Because we're in your corner, we want you to be mindful of steps you can take to mitigate any risks as much as possible associated with liability when hosting a social gathering.
Here are some tips to help reduce liability associated with host liquor liability:
* Create A Risk Management Program
Implement a liquor liability program
Get Buy in from upper management
Communicate to supervisors and employees
Advise employees to drink responsibility
Prepare a liquor liability incident report
Complete the report in the event of an incident
Review current general liability to determine coverage
Require the vendor to provide a certificate of Liability Insurance and request to be named as an additional insured
* Promote Safety & Sobriety Tips
Serve drinks rather than offering self-serve bar
Place table tents to drink responsibly
Offer non-alcoholic beverages
Serve food with alcohol
Require servers to measure spirits
Promote designated driving programs (Uber. Lyft, etc)
Wishing you a safe and blessed Holiday Season from our CH Insurance Family to yours. If you have further questions about any of the recommendations above you can always email our very own Tony D'Amato who can advise you further.
