POLICY

It is the Companys policy that all of its workplaces are smoke-free and that all employees have a right to work in a smoke-free environment and not be exposed to second-hand smoke. This is also a statutory requirement. As such, the Companys business premises are no smoking premises and smoking is prohibited in all areas of the workplace at all times with no exceptions. This includes company cars and other company vehicles. The Company is committed to protecting the health and safety of all of its employees.

The Companys policy on smoking applies not only to employees but also to visitors to the workplace, including clients, customers, contractors, agency workers and suppliers.

In addition, the Company wishes to portray a professional business image to its clients, customers and suppliers when they visit the Companys business premises. Therefore, employees are not allowed to smoke immediately outside the entrances to its business premises. [However, smoking is permitted outside [set out details of external area where smoking is allowed]].

Appropriate “No Smoking” signs are clearly displayed at the entrances to and within the workplace.
