Ringing in the New Year with Safety First!New Years Eve Safety for Your Nonprofit Event

Many nonprofit organizations and for-profit organizations alike choose to ring in the New Year by holding a spectacular, festive event. If you will be ringing in the New Year by hosting an event, you must keep these New Year’s Eve safety tips in mind:

  • Even though you operate as a nonprofit, you are responsible for anything that goes wrong during your party or after your party. Therefore, you must designate safe rides home for everyone if there will be alcohol consumption. You can do this by calling a local taxi service and asking for a fleet of cars to arrive at the time your party ends.
  • Likewise, your nonprofit standing does not exclude you from liability risks. Therefore, we recommend having your party at somewhere other than your facility. If you must, make sure to give us a call to confirm adequate liability protection. The last thing you want is for the mission of your nonprofit organization to be compromised due to liability lawsuits. Safeguard your nonprofits assets now before it becomes too late!
  • If you will be serving alcohol at your work event, you must serve nonalcoholic beverages and food as well. Many businesses wrongly make the move to only serve alcohol, which can lead to a wide range of disasters. Having appetizers or a buffet in addition to sodas can eliminate potential hazards and catastrophes.
  • Most importantly, make sure to send out safety tips with the invitation to your event. This brochure should include driving safety tips, the importance of obtaining a designated driver, and how to limit alcohol consumption.

We hope your nonprofit organization’s New Year’s event goes smoothly so that you can ring in the New Year in the most festive way possible!
