Consell organises a course on serving alcohol responsibly

The Formentera Office of Social Welfare is inviting active employees of music and dance venues, especially bar staff and managers, to take part in a course it is organising on how to serve alcohol responsibly and reduce associated risks. The course is free and can be taken in two sessions, from 10.00am to 12 noon or from 5.00pm to 7.00pm, in the auditorium of the Consell de Formentera.

The course is one of various actions which build on the Consell de Formentera's campaign 'No t'ofeguis a l'alcohol' [Don't Drown in Alcohol] with collaboration from Fundación Salud y Comunidad, the small and medium-sized business association (Pimef), the Chamber of Commerce and Hotel Federation of Formentera.
 
The course aims to give participants key tips to promote safer music and dance spaces and to increase the sense of well-being among people there. The targeted training also seeks to familiarise participants with the different types of drugs and substances often found in music and dance spaces; help them to identify and correctly anticipate risk situations and stop them from becoming problematic; train them to become points of reference in the transmission of values, information and preventive tools on questions of health, and to correctly apply preventive guidelines on drug use, violent behaviour and the responsible dispensing of alcohol.

Participants must be 18 or over at the time of the course and must register by 4 April by emailing educaciosocial@conselldeformentera.cat and indicating their full name, telephone number and preferred time of training.
