One of the best defenses against liquor liability lawsuits is having a TIPS-certified staff and good documentation. The book will not only protect the establishment, but also make the employees conscious of the knowledge and skills they learned in their TIPS session.

Arlington, VA (Vocus) May 14, 2008
Health Communications, Inc., provider of the TIPS (Training for Intervention Procedures) Program, today announced the release of an Alcohol Incident Report Log Book. One important element of TIPS Training is teaching participants how to document any incidents that occur at establishments that serve alcohol. Use of the Incident Report Log Book encourages staff members to apply the skills and responsibilities they learned in TIPS training and provides an easy-to-follow format for recording any incidents and the establishment's response to them.
"One of the best defenses against liquor liability lawsuits is having a TIPS-certified staff and good documentation. The book will not only protect the establishment, but also make the employees conscious of the knowledge and skills they learned in their TIPS session. Consistent and thorough documentation is an essential part of demonstrating a commitment to responsible alcohol service," said Trevor Estelle, HCI's Director of Sales & Marketing.
The book is broken down into two parts: a Daily Log and Incident Report Forms. The daily log includes an entry for every day of the year where managers or other designated staff can record whether or not an incident occurred. Completing this Daily Log every day demonstrates consistency and commitment on the part of establishments to monitor and address alcohol-related incidents. After the Daily Log, there are uniquely numbered forms to document all the details related to incidents that may occur at an establishment.
Through July 1, 2008, the Incident Report Log Book is being offered at a unit price of $24 plus tax & freight. After July 1, the list price will increase to $30. Volume discounts are available.
