Restaurants v/s Pubs: How do RSA techniques differ?

Techniques regarding the responsible service of alcohol do not vary between institutions. RSA courses(SITHFAB201 – Provide responsible service of alcohol) stress the importance of avoiding the supply of alcohol to minors and those who have already consumed the substance in excess. While pubs are more likely to contain persons who have drunk too much alcohol than a restaurant, this does not change employee obligations to serve (or not serve) a customer.

Responsible Service of Alcohol requirements will however, change from state to state. Bars and pubs in Perth are likely to have different RSA standards then bars and pubs in NSW. These standards are enforced by legislation, and as a result, the RSA certificate required to be obtained by employees engaged in the distribution of alcohol will be different in each jurisdiction.

This also affects the ease with which employees can gain this certification. In most states, an online alternative to weekend seminars is available, with RSA WA, NSW, QLD, VIC, SA and NT courses available over the internet.

However, it is important these barriers exist to prevent alcohol distribution from being undertaken lightly. Employees engaged in these practices have a responsibility not only to the people that they serve, but also those who may be affected by these customers. These employees are often the only instrument in place with the power to ensure no one is harmed by alcohol consumption.
