Licensees and RSA staff implement a range of strategies to prevent intoxication, including monitoring of patrons, offering alternative drink and food, and implementing a range of restrictions for the purchase of liquor.
Licensees and staff must take all reasonable steps to prevent intoxication. Practical methods that prevent intoxication may include:
- Serve free water
- Provide free snack food
- Provide a range of mid, low and non-alcoholic drinks
- Offer alternatives to alcoholic drinks
- Slowing down the service of alcohol is another strategy adopted by RSA staff and managers.
