Title Caution: Office parties and alcohol
Original title Attention! Alcool et party au bureau [in French]
Bibliographic information June 2008, Vol. 24, No.2, p.9-11. Illus.
Abstract No enterprise wishes to see their employees die in an accident after returning from a company-organized party or "farewell drinks" event. This article comments the legal responsibilities of employers with respect to this issue and presents simple means to ensure that employees return home safety: supply of breath analysers; supply of taxi vouchers or other means of conveyance; controlling the amount of alcohol served; ensuring that the catering staff is trained with respect to serving alcohol and aware of their responsibilities.
