H5. Smoking Cessation/Respiratory Health
1 January, 2013
Submitted: 29 April, 2015
Please describe how you have encourged your staff to stop smoking and reduced other risks in the workplace to respiratory health over the last year. There is a 2000 character limit when completing this section.
We now provide an on-site occupational health service, in addition to existing employee assistance programme which can be accessed via a telephone helpline. The occupational health service operates initially on a referral basis but employees are also requesting to speak to the occupational health advisor. The occupational health advisor covers both physical and mental health issues and sees on average 8 – 10 employees per month, either for follow up or initial consultations.
Through this service we know very few of our employees smoke, so we continue to promote the fact that we are a non smoking organisation and the opportunity to exercise plus the health benefits that this can bring.
