Host responsibility tops menu

Licensees from North West of Auckland are urged to attend an expo on host responsibility at North Harbour Stadium, Albany on 14 June.

The North West Host Responsibility and Safer Environments Expo is organised by North Shore City Council, Waitakere City Council and Rodney District Council, Auckland District Health Board, Alcohol Healthwatch and the Police.

The Expo promotes safer environments in and around licensed premises.

“We are encouraging licensees to be aware of their responsibilities as hosts and understand what makes for safer situations. It’s important for them to be aware of safe transport options and to offer healthy substantial food in a drinking environment – not just a supply of frozen pies out the back,” says Waitakere City Council Advocate for Children and Youth Ewen Gilmour.

“The young have learned the habit of having a designated driver. This is something that licensees need to impress on their adult customers as well, that it is not OK to drink, then drive,” he says.

The expo aims to demonstrate to licensees the urgent need to reduce intoxication levels on licensed premises and also to encourage them to provide low and non-alcoholic drinks.

Presentations on the day include: drink spiking (Waitemata District Health Board), changing the culture of intoxication (ALAC) and Gambling, alcohol in raffles (Department of Internal Affairs).

The results of the Auckland Regional Exit Breath Survey will be available at the expo. The Auckland-wide survey records intoxication levels of patrons leaving licensed premises.

The expo will be held from 10am-8pm, Tuesday 14 June 2005, North Harbour Stadium, Albany. Entry is free.
