Why tobacco-free policies?
Policies make it easier or even possible for people to make healthy choices. Tobacco-free policies are laws, ordinances, and even workplace protocols or regulations that limit or ban tobacco use. These policies protect everyone from the dangers of secondhand smoke.
The choices individuals make about their health and behavior are important parts of having a healthy community. Yet, decisions made at broader workplace or community levels can impact health on a much larger scale.
What is a 100% tobacco-free policy?
100% tobacco-free means no tobacco use by anyone, at anytime, anywhere on the property. 100% tobacco -free policies are often adopted by businesses, non-profit organizations, or local school systems.
