Responsible Beverage Service (RBS) Training is required by Preferred Insurance Carriers

  • Alcohol awareness programs provide individuals with the knowledge and confidence they need to recognize potential alcohol-related problems and intervene to prevent alcohol-related tragedies.
  • Failure to act responsibly could result in fines, imprisonment, losing your liquor license, increased insurance costs, or losing your business.
  • Be aware that you would be responsible for civil & possible criminal damages and unless employees are properly trained, coverage could be denied.
  • But it is not all doom and gloom. Business who provide their restaurant, bar or convenience store employees with effective alcohol-awareness training qualify for additional discounts on their policy premium.

What is RBS Training?

Between October 1, 2006 and March 31, 2009, the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) operated under a grant from the Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) which was designed to evaluate and improve the effectiveness of Responsible Beverage Service (RBS) training programs, as utilized by the ABC and other public and private RBS providers throughout the state.

RBS training is a community-based approach to promote public safety and to reduce risks associated with the retail alcohol environment. RBS has three essential elements: the adoption of alcohol-service policy for ABC-licensed establishments; the providing of server education and guidance; and the development of partnerships between law enforcement, local government and community groups.

Through a grant, the Director of the ABC established the RBS Training Advisory Board, a body tasked with reviewing the latest literature and scientific research findings for presenting effective RBS training programs, and making curriculum recommendations. The Advisory Board was made up of representatives from the hospitality industry, educational organizations and community-based non-profit organizations (RBS Advisory Board). The Advisory Board recommended standardized RBS educational objectives and provided guidance to the Director for the establishment and publication of best practices curriculum guidelines and instructional techniques (RBS Best Practices).

Project SAFER takes great pride in having turned the RBS Best Practices into engaging, practical and informative training courses for anyone involved in the sale or service of alcoholic beverages.

PizzaMan Dan’s

Project SAFER offers an amazing Responsible Beverage Training program. Executive Director Kim O’Neil has put together a program that not only educates our crew about alcohol beverage laws, but how to apply them in the real world. Serving alcohol, we are potentially dealing with life and death. When a PizzaMan Dan’s crew member graduates from a Project Safer class, I am confident that they understand the alcohol laws and their responsibility to our customers and the community.
