"Any sale or service has the potential to put a company's business at risk from fines, penalties, revocation of license, civil and even criminal liability. Everyone involved with the business needs to be well trained to manage those risks and mitigate their exposure. Responsible beverage service is truly about both public safety and risk management. There is really a common goal among regulator and the regulated, and it is centered on training."
