Smoke Free Procedure

Posted on

This procedure has been developed to protect all employees, service users, customers and visitors from exposure to second hand smoke and to assist compliance with the Health Act 2006.

Exposure to second hand smoke, also known as passive smoking, increases the risk of lung cancer, heart disease and other illnesses. Ventilation or separating smokers and non-smokers within the same airspace does not completely stop potentially dangerous exposure.

It is North Yorkshire Police (NYP) policy that all of our workplaces are smoke free and all employees have a right to work in a smoke free environment.
