The club recognises that it is against the law to allow disruptive or violent behaviour to occur on these premises.
Persons who are intoxicated will be refused admission to our premises. We will display and refer to intoxication signs in order to support our responsible attitude and meet the requirements of this legislation. Any patron in this establishment will be denied service if they are considered intoxicated. The club does not seek to encourage rapid or excessive consumption through pricing. Low alcoholic beers and non-alcoholic beverages are stocked, promoted and offered as an alternative to patrons who are judged as becoming intoxicated. If such patrons continue to order alcoholic beverages the staff member will contact a supervisor and alert them to the patron’s current or impending state of intoxication and refuse service on their own judgement. The club does not condone or encourage high-risk groups entering its premises. The club carries all necessary RSA signs to highlight these points.
Wyong Race Club recognises only 3 forms of identification. 1) Current Drivers’ Licence. 2) RTA Proof of Age Card. 3) Passport. If a staff member believes that a person who is ordering or being supplied alcohol is under 18 years of age, they will request proof of age. If a person is less than 18 years of age or refuse to produce identification, staff will refuse service and advise a supervisor of the patron(s). All necessary RSA signage will be visible to both patrons and bar staff. Persons under the age of 18 are not permitted to stand or be served at the bar even for non-alcoholic drinks.
DISRUPTIVE OR VIOLENT BEHAVIOUR
If a staff member becomes aware that a person’s behaviour is becoming disruptive or violent, the staff member will notify security who will discuss it with the persons. If the behaviour is not rectified, the person will be asked to leave the premises.
REFUSAL OF SERVICE
If service of alcohol is refused to a patron, the staff member refusing service will emphasise that the individual’s patronage is greatly valued. The staff member will then inform the patron that further service of alcohol is illegal and could jeopardise the staff member’s position, the club’s liquor licence and both parties could incur large fines.
DRINKING AND DRIVING
Staff members will be pro-active in seeking to discourage drinking and driving. The club offers a number of services designed to alleviate the need for drink driving. These services include the provision of overnight parking facilities, the provision of a safe place for the holding of car keys overnight and the making of alternative transport arrangements.
TRAINING AND PROMOTIONS
All staff have been informed about this policy on Responsible Service of Alcohol and adequately trained to support this policy. This club seeks to publicise and promote its position on Responsible Serving Practices.
