Responsible Alcohol Retail Courses

Responsible Sale of Alcohol

The safe service of alcohol is of vital importance to those in the hospitality trade – failure to act responsibly can result in fines, loss of license and the potential closure of the business. Responsible sale and service of alcohol is important for all levels of the hospitality, tourism and retail service industries to minimise the risk of alcohol-related problems associated with the use and abuse of alcohol by any person.

Management and all staff who sell or supply alcohol must promote and support a safe environment for alcohol to be consumed in a professional and responsible manner. By engaging in the responsible sale and service of alcohol, a better environment is created for both customers and staff.
