End Of Year Safe Work Practices

It's that time of year again. It's important to remember safe work practices - even during the holiday season.

Tips to ensure a safe and enjoyable Christmas party include:

• choose a venue that is appropriate for planned activities

• remind staff about workplace policies, including your code of conduct, bullying and sexual harassment policies

• review and communicate your social media policy

• serve alcohol responsibly (this includes ensuring no alcohol is served to underage staff, and limiting or denying alcohol to intoxicated staff)

• ensure managers and senior staff members set a good example and model appropriate behaviours

• provide food and non-alcoholic drinks

• set appropriate start and finish times for the function

• choose a venue with access to public transport or facilitate safe transport options for staff who have been drinking (eg cab-charges, or designated drivers who won’t be drinking alcohol)

• consider appointing a responsible person to monitor the event, and to be a point of contact in the event of anything going wrong tis person should be familiar with workplace safety policies and have the authority to act on any issues that arise).
