Dutch alcohol law requires owners of such establishments (mostly cafes, restaurants and hotels) to meet so-called social hygiene standards. In order for an establishment to serve or sell alcohol, a Social Hygiene certified employee must be present on site.
Social hygiene training teaches employers at alcohol-serving businesses how to respond if their patrons become unruly or harass other customers, among others. The training covers proper professional conduct when dealing with other issues as well, such as drug use, gambling, hospitality, relevant operations laws and labour laws for the industry.
