Holiday Office Party Tips

Holiday Office Party Tips

With the holidays looming right around the corner, do you know the proper safety protocol which could save your business from a nasty lawsuit?

Everyone loves the holidays. It brings people together, and most importantly, we finally get some much-needed time off (excluding a few professions). Your company may have a holiday party planned as a way to give thanks to your employees for a job well done, but you may not have yet thought about safety procedures. Because the company holiday party is work-related, any accidents that occur may come back to haunt you in the form of a nasty lawsuit. Here are a few things you should do before the big holiday office party.

Holiday Office Party Tips

  1. Send office email notifications to set the tone of the party. Discourage your employees from excessive drinking, and remind them of the behavior you expect at the party.
  2. Hire a caterer to serve alcohol to your employees. They can tell when someone has had a bit too much to drink and cut them off before it gets out of hand.
  3. Schedule the event during the weekend or after work hours.
  4. Arrange for alternative transportation if alcohol will be served. Any person that drinks should not drive home and should use the alternative transportation to get back home.
  5. Review all complaints brought up during the party. Dismissing any complaints may lead to greater liability than the original complaint.
  6. Hold the party at an offsite location. This may ensure any injuries are not your company’s fault, rather the venue at which the party is held.

Make sure that your business is protected from the dangers of liability and more with the proper commercial insurance. For policies across the globe, contact the independent insurance professionals at Lloyd S. Berkett Insurance Agency in Los Angeles.
