With Christmas party season soon upon us employers need to ensure they have alcohol management policies in place and that these policies are known by all staff.

If alcohol is to be consumed ensure that there is also plenty of low alcohol and non-alcoholic drinks as well as plenty of food.

Monitor that employees are not pushed to drink and step in if someone looks like they are drinking too much.

Considered themed parties, such as bowling or go-karting, to ensure employees aren’t just standing around with nothing to do except drink.

Provide safe transport home if required.
