Suggestions for the Social Host
Posted by The Breathalyzer Team on 8/26/2011 to General Information
Any time you want to invite people over, there are a few things that need to be considered. As a social host you could be held liable for any injuries or accidents relating to alcohol. You could be sued if you were aware that your guest was intoxicated and you did nothing to prevent that person from driving or causing injury.

As a social host you are expected to monitor your quests and their alcohol consumption. A social host is considered someone who is not selling or supplying alcohol for profit, is not an employer, or any position, which there is a unique relationship with their quests. Lastly, a social host is considered someone who is serving alcohol or condoning the consumption of alcohol on premises he or she has control over.

In order to ensure safety for your guests and others, limit or don’t drink alcohol in order to monitor alcohol consumption by your guests. Make sure you know your guests, last thing you want is a minor. Make sure you have food available and if possible keep a breathalyzer handy. There are plenty breathalyzers that are easy to use and don’t require a mouthpiece. Double-check your guests before they leave. If they are too intoxicated to drive, offer a bed, a cab or a designated driver. If all else fails, call the police.

Having safety precautions in place will ensure a safe and fun night for everyone involved.
