- Assume that the person is unaware of the policy.
- A staff member or club representative will approach the person breaching the policy and ask them to refrain from the behaviour and remind them about the policy.
- If an offence continues (i.e. someone continues to smoke in a smoke free area or is intoxicated) the most Senior Staff member will verbally warn them again and hand over a formally written letter. The letter will outline the Healthy Club Policy and state that if the persons continues the behaviour they will be asked to leave.
