As the event planner, you will be responsible for the safe conduct of the event. For information on alcohol being served at events, refer to the Alcohol and Other Drugs at ACU Policy. In particular, refer to points 4.1.4 and Appendix 3 in the policy. When serving alcohol, observe state and territory liquor licensing laws.
Note: If you have any further queries regarding ACU’s policies on risk management and the responsible service of alcohol, please contact your local HR consultant.
Security and emergencies The University security manager should be consulted for advice and guidance on security measures to be taken for all functions and events where alcohol is served. Any emergencies that occur should be reported to security and, if necessary, emergency services (000) should be contacted.
When setting up, ensure that signage and furniture is not blocking emergency access points in the venue. If there is an emergency, ensure that lifts are not used. If the venue is not usually used for events (e.g. roof, foyer space) ensure that careful planning has taken place to ensure all risks have been considered. Always remain calm and ensure that guests are safe and following safety instructions.
