NEW TIPS PROGRAM FOR OFF-PREMISE
Version 3.O of the TIPS for Off-Premise program has been released. The new version introduces to cashiers, managers and operators an improved way of addressing alcohol-related sales concerns. Specifically targeted towards grocery, convenience stores and liquor stores, the three-hour classroom session provides participants with strategies for preventing alcohol sales to underage and/or intoxicated patrons. The primary goal of the new program is to build skills, instill confidence and empower participants to step in to situations and ensure that alcohol is sold responsibly and legally. Employees and managers who participate are able to prevent sales to minors, recognize signs of intoxication, effectively intervene to prevent problem situations, and handle refusal situations with greater confidence. This version also includes improved graphics and other changes designed to enhance readability and speed access to specific sections within the printed materials.
