Company Holiday Party Safety

Topics: Infographic Loss Control

Company holiday parties are a great opportunity to show your employees your appreciation, but they also come with inherent risks. While everyone enjoys having a great time with their coworkers, these once-a-year events can make it easy to overlook certain safety and liability issues that are otherwise kept top of mind within your organization.

This holiday season, AmTrust's Loss Control team offers six simple ways to reduce your company's risk of liability  throughout the celebrations. Remember, your employees' health and safety should always be of utmost importance, no matter the time of year. 

6 Steps to a Risk Free Holiday Party

  1. Keep it inclusive. Make the event non-denominational and focused on celebrating the year's successes instead of a particular religious holiday. 
  2. Make it a choice. The invite should clearly state attendance is voluntary so employees don’t feel pressure to attend.
  3. Skip the potluck. Hire a licensed professional service to reduce the risk of foodborne illness.
  4. Limit alcohol consumption. Hire professional bartenders instead of letting employees serve themselves.
  5. Monitor those selfies. Encourage employees to be mindful of what they share on social media.
  6. After the party. Arrange for transportation home for employees and guests.
