WESTERN NSW venues will be audited this week to make sure they are complying with their licence conditions and the state’s liquor and gaming laws in the lead-up to the Christmas period.
Office of Liquor, Gaming and Racing (OLGR) director of enforcement and compliance Anthony Keon said audits would focus on venue management and operating procedures.
“The Office of Liquor, Gaming and Racing as well as NSW Police conduct targeted inspections of licensed venues across the state to ensure they are operating responsibly and in line with community expectations,” he said.
“This includes ensuring proper management and operating procedures are in place to support responsible service of alcohol and prevent intoxication of patrons, as well as other potential harms. This is particularly important with the upcoming busy festive season.”
Mr Keon said licenced venues in Dubbo, Narromine, Gilgandra, Trangie, Warren and Wellington would be among those that could be inspected.
OLGR inspectors would help licensees and venue managers review their business practices and procedures and recommend improvements where necessary.
Inspectors would focus on responsible service of alcohol, responsible conduct of gaming and ensuring venue staff had proper accreditation. It would also focus on what alcohol management practices were in place to prevent intoxication, management of patron behaviour, target irresponsible liquor promotions or activities and include what measures were in place to prevent the sale of alcohol to under 18s.
“These audits will ensure venues have suitable controls in place to ensure responsible trading and compliance, and will assist in the identification and targeting of any high risk activities that can contribute to alcohol-related harm, including violence,” Mr Keon said.
