About this document

This document provides a comprehensive and flexible model no smoking policy businesses of all sizes, and comes with information on how to implement and enforce it.

Having such a policy in place will ensure that your employees not only comply with health and safety legislation, but also help you as an employer enforce no smoking areas in and around your premises. By having a written policy, employees will not be able to claim that they didn't know the rules.

We recommended that you consult with a variety of employees from all sections of the organisation before implementing the policy. This will help to ensure that all employees views are represented fairly and therefore will do better to achieve lasting success.

Once implemented, all employees should be given access to a copy of the policy (most likely as part of a staff handbook).
