The Utah Tobacco-Free Alliance Business Workgroup supports businesses through the development of a comprehensive tobacco-free policy.
Businesses strive to create an environment that maximizes productivity and customer service. One of the best, yet overlooked, ways to create this environment is to have a comprehensive tobacco free policy for your business. Essentially this means that 1) employees and visitors cannot use any tobacco product or nicotine delivery system, including electronic cigarettes, on the property; and 2) business ownership will provide resources and/or incentives to help employees quit using tobacco and nicotine products. There is no "Win-Lose" option here, this has only a "Win-Win" outcome. Business wins because they save money, increase productivity, and gain community support. Everyone wins because a world with less tobacco and nicotine use is a better, healthier place to live.
