Workplace Documentation of Practice


The Smoke-Free Ontario Act (SFOA) prohibits smoking in enclosed workplaces and licensed taxis; however, it does not extend to outdoor workplace settings. When considering the overall body of evidence, smoke-free workplace policies that include outdoor smoking bans on the property or worksite, protect all employees from the harms of physical and social exposure to tobacco smoking. Smoke-free policies also help to reduce smokers’ consumption and increase cessation rates, which is particularly relevant for young people entering the workforce. The workplace is a setting where many young people make the transition into adulthood, and exposure to tobacco use and second-hand smoke (SHS) in the workplace may increase their risk of smoking initiation. This documentation of practice may be beneficial for practitioners who are working to help employers move towards smoke-free outdoor workplaces.
