Liquor harm minimisation campaigns
Promoting and enhancing community safety and responsible alcohol use is an important consideration for liquor licensees. The Office of Liquor and Gaming Regulation (OLGR) works closely with Queensland's liquor industry to develop campaigns that:
- promote the responsible supply and use of alcohol
- increase awareness and education of liquor harm minimisation practices
- encourage a change to the drinking culture in Queensland.
Current OLGR harm minimisation campaigns include:
- 'Most expensive drink' - educating parents, step-parents and guardians about the penalties for irresponsibly supplying alcohol to under 18s.
- 'Follow the law' - refreshing the responsible service of alcohol (RSA) knowledge of liquor licensees and hospitality staff.
OLGR provides artwork for the above campaigns (including posters and LCD images) for you to use free-of-charge.
About the 'Follow the law' campaign
All liquor licensees and most staff involved in the service of alcohol must be certified in RSA. 'Follow the law' is a series of 5 online RSA refresher courses featuring a cast of colourful characters. Together they highlight:
- underage drinking and young people at licensed venues
- checking for identification
- disorderly behaviour
- unduly intoxicated behaviour
- unacceptable and illegal promotions.

To educate your staff, display the following 'Follow the law' posters in your staff tearooms, meeting rooms and other common areas. Use these posters in conjunction with our online RSA refresher courses.
About the 'Most expensive drink' campaign
The new 'Most expensive drink' campaign replaces the 'No minor offence' campaign. It highlights the laws about, and penalties for, irresponsibly supplying alcohol to people aged under 18 years.
In Queensland, it is illegal to supply alcohol to anyone under 18 years of age at a private place (such as the family home):
- if you are not the 'responsible adult'
- you are not providing 'responsible supervision' of their consumption.
This campaign educates and reminds people that it is illegal to supply alcohol to someone under 18, for them to drink while unsupervised in a private place. Depending on the circumstances, supplying alcohol to someone aged under 18 years could result in a fine of $10,092. (Fine amount current from 1 July 2017.)
