Responsible Service of Alcohol
The Board and Management of Maroochy RSL makes a commitment to maintain the Responsible Service of Alcohol in a safe environment for all members, patrons, visitors and the local community. Service of alcohol will be denied to any person suspected of being under 18 years of age and to any person who is at that time considered to be in, or approaching a state of intoxication.
The Board and Management acknowledge their Duty of Care and agree:
- That club patrons and the local community are not obliged to tolerate any inconvenience or disturbance as a result of the way that the club conducts its business
- Not to sell or supply alcoholic beverages to any person who is at that time considered to be in or approaching a state of intoxication. The Liquor Act defines intoxication as; “A state of being in which a person’s mental and physical faculties are impaired because of consumption of liquor so as to diminish the person’s ability to think and act in a way in which an ordinary and prudent person in full possession of his or her faculties, and using reasonable care, would act under the circumstances.”
- That management and staff have a statutory responsibility to deny the sale or consumption of alcohol to any person whom they consider may be intoxicated and reserve the right to deny entry into the club to any person whom they consider may be intoxicated
- To provide in house training on patron duty of care to all staff
- To record all incidents that result in the refusal of service due to intoxication and to maintain these records on file at the club
- To deny the service of alcohol to any person suspected of being under 18 years of age
- To ensure that only the authorised forms of identification as defined in the Liquor Act are accepted as a means of age identification and service will be refused to anyone who is asked to produce age identification and refuses, for whatever reason to do so
The sale or supply of alcoholic beverages to patrons who are considered to be unduly intoxicated or disorderly could result in a maximum fine of $8,000 to any individual employee or $50,000 to the Management.
