Smoke Free Policy
This Smoke Free Policy sets out a Company's duty to provide a safe working environment and uphold the ban imposed on smoking in public places, as laid down in the Health Act 2006. The policy is also available in the Employment Document Folder.
In addition to setting out the principles contained in the Non Smoking Policy the document explains the need for adequate signing, whom the policy applies to and how it will be enforced. There are also optional clauses about the use of electronic cigarettes.
Since 1 July 2007 it has been an offence to smoke in a public place or workplace.
Companies that fail to enforce the provisions laid out in this document will face heavy fines. Simply possessing a no smoking policy and ensuring that all employees are aware of it may be sufficient to eliminate or reduce a Company’s liability to pay such fines in the event that an employee does commit an offence.
This Smoke Free Policy is in open format. Either enter the requisite details in the highlighted fields or adjust the wording to suit your purposes.
