Your partner in protecting your business
If part of the festivities includes serving alcohol in your home, you will want to do what you can to limit your liquor liability, and of course, avoid having a guest get injured. You could be held responsible if they get into an accident. A lot of your guests may be driving home. How would you feel if they got into an accident on their way? Feeling terrible is just the start. Here's ways to reduce or eliminate this risk, coming to us in part from the Insurance Information Institute.
1. Every guest should have a designated driver.
2. Collect keys at the door. You're sending a preventative message.
3. Have plenty of non-alcoholic beverages (Mocktails are fun!) and food so there are plenty of options and no one is drinking on an empty stomach.
4. Offer alternative transportation to guests without a designated driver. Have alternative ride service phone numbers, such as UBER or LYFT or even train schedules if that makes sense.
5. Be a responsible host and stay sober so you can monitor your guests and make smart decisions.
6. Stop serving alcohol before the end of the evening.
7. Offer sleeping arrangements in your home.
You can be safe and have fun too. Being a responsible host is always the right thing to do.
