RBS Alcohol Training Company in Los Angeles

As of 2022, all bar and restaurant employees who serve alcohol in California must obtain a new certification according to the Responsible Beverage Service Training Act. Whether your business serves alcohol to customers or allows patrons to bring their own alcoholic beverages onto the premises, Safe Kitchens alcohol training provides valuable knowledge and procedures for employees to help them handle individuals who may have consumed too much alcohol.

The Responsible Beverage Service (RBS) training program teaches the applicable regulatory requirements, liquor laws, and industry norms, but also it will teach bar employees and waitstaff to recognize when a customer may be intoxicated. We have found that the seriousness of these issues is better perceived by employees when classes are taught by third parties, as opposed to in-house.

We will show your personnel the best options for dealing with intoxicated individuals—whether they are difficult to communicate with or have become belligerent—and how to maintain the safety and well being of both employees and patrons during such events.

Not only will Safe Kitchens alcohol training allow service staff to react quickly, decisively, and diplomatically, but in the case of alcohol-related incidents or accidents, it can help protect your business from potential legal action that may stem from them.

Do I Need a Bartender’s License?

Yes, The RBS certification is required to be a bartender in California and is commonly known as a “bartender’s license.” The RBS certification can be obtained through the state-approved training program from Safe Kitchens.

Our program covers responsible beverage service, alcohol laws, recognizing signs of intoxication, and more. Without the RBS certification, you may not legally serve or handle alcoholic beverages in the state, and non-compliance can lead to fines, penalties, or even the suspension of your establishment’s alcohol license.

Regulatory Compliance

Ensuring compliance with alcohol regulations is paramount for restaurants, as adherence to these laws not only upholds legal standards but also fosters a safe and responsible environment for both patrons and the establishment itself.

Importance of Adhering to Regulations

Adhering to alcohol regulations is not just a legal obligation but also an ethical responsibility for restaurant owners and staff. These regulations are in place to safeguard public safety, prevent alcohol-related incidents, and curb excessive alcohol consumption. Providing alcohol training for staff and complying with these rules demonstrates a commitment to responsible beverage service and the well-being of patrons.

Training as a Compliance Tool

Alcohol compliance training equips restaurant staff with the knowledge and skills necessary to navigate the complexities of alcohol regulations. It provides an in-depth understanding of age verification, recognizing intoxicated individuals, and responsibly managing alcohol service. By training staff in these areas, restaurants minimize the risk of non-compliance due to human error.

Regulatory Fines and Penalties

Non-compliance with alcohol regulations can have severe consequences, including substantial fines and penalties. Violations may result in license suspension, revocation, or even legal actions. For instance, serving alcohol to a minor can lead to fines, license suspension, and potential lawsuits. Over-serving alcohol to an already intoxicated patron can result in accidents, injuries, and costly legal ramifications for the restaurant.

Additionally, failure to properly document and maintain records as required by law can lead to audits and legal sanctions. In some cases, a single violation can tarnish a restaurant’s reputation and impact its ability to operate.
