Abstract: The workplace is a major source of exposure to the harmful effects of environmental tobacco smoke. Employers have a moral, ethical and legal responsibility to protect the environment of all persons in the workplace by establishing a smoke-free workplace. Employers concerned about their employees may be able to improve their health and help them be more productive by creating a smoke-free workplace. Many countries and governments now require workplaces to be smoke-free. Both smoking and non-smoking employees may be helped by such policies. This means that smoking is forbidden in enclosed places of work. This includes office blocks, various buildings, public houses/bars, restaurants and company vehicles (cars and vans). While smoking in an enclosed workplace is forbidden under the law, employers have discretion to provide an outdoor smoking area. Every workplace must have a written policy on smoking, which must contain some minimum restrictions on where employees can smoke. Employers must recognize that employees who don't smoke or who choose not to smoke at work should be protected from tobacco smoke in the workplace as much as is reasonably practicable. The employer must consult with employees when drawing up the policy, and must review it each year. The employer must inform employees about the policy and about the smoking and non-smoking areas
