Smoke free Workplace: Workplace Wellness

Adopting a Smoke-free Workplace

Tobacco-free workplaces can enhance productivity in two ways: by reducing the effects of secondhand smoke (SHS) on nonsmokers and by reducing excess smoking-related absenteeism among smokers who are motivated to quit as a result of the tobacco-free policy.

Action Steps:
1.  Assess the current situation so you know where your company stands
2.  Support for Employees that Smoke
3.  Decide on a new policy and develop a plan to implement it

4.  Make the Transition Smooth and the Policy Work
5.  Announce and Manage the Policy

6.  Sample Smoke free Workplace Policy
