Smoking in the workplace
Supporting smoke-free workplaces – a policy implementation guide (PDF 510KB) has been designed to assist in the development and implementation of a smoke-free workplace policy that complements legislative bans in enclosed workplaces and extends to all outdoor workplaces.
The guide provides information on the health effects of exposure to environmental tobacco smoke, current smoke-free legislation and the steps that must be taken in order to meet the legal requirements. The document also details the ways in which organisations can help to encourage and support smoking cessation. It offers a step-by-step guide to the policy planning and decision making process and provides a sample smoke-free workplace policy.
