Employers concerned about their employees may be able to improve their health and help them be more productive by creating tobacco-free workplaces. Many state and local governments now require workplaces to be smoke-free. Making your workplace completely tobacco-free can have an even greater impact. Both tobacco user and non-user employees may be helped by such policies.

Benefits to implementing a tobacco-free policy include:

  • A tobacco-free environment creates a healthier work environment
  • Tobacco users who want to quit may find it easier to achieve success
  • Everyone is protected from secondhand smoke exposure
  • Rates for health, life and disability insurance may be reduced as fewer employees use tobacco
  • Reduced tobacco butt litter, creating a cleaner and healthier environment 

How TACFL supports Tobacco-Free Worksites:

  • Resources and guidance
  • Sample policies
  • Tobacco-Free signage
  • Tobacco cessation resources
