Alcohol Policy

Policy Summary

The Chartered Professionals in Human Resources of British Columbia and Yukon CPHR BC & Yukon opposes the operation of a vehicle (or engaging in other inherently dangerous activities) while impaired. The objective of this policy is to establish a protocol for the responsible consumption of alcohol at CPHR BC & Yukon events.

Conditions of Attendance

Members (and other guests) are invited to CPHR BC & Yukon events on the condition of their acceptance that they must:

  • accept responsibility for their own alcohol consumption;
  • moderate their intake of alcohol;
  • co-operate with CPHR BC & Yukon’s efforts to ensure their safety.

CPHR BC & Yukon reserves the right to ban from future events any member (or other guests) who ignore, or fail to comply with, these conditions of attendance.

Event Management

At all CPHR BC & Yukon events at which alcohol is served, CPHR BC & Yukon will make reasonable efforts to:

  • remind the attendees of this policy and of their obligations as guests of CPHR BC & Yukon;
  • provide a selection of non-alcoholic beverages as alternatives to alcoholic beverages;
  • prevent an attendee who shows outward signs of impairment from continuing to consume alcohol;
  • appoint a designated driver or provide alternate means of transportation to attendees who show outward signs of impairment;
  • prevent an attendee who shows outward signs of impairment from leaving the event unaccompanied;
  • document, immediately following the event, any actions which a CPHR BC & Yukon staff member or volunteer takes in response to dealing with an impaired event attendee.
