Smoking Regulations in the Workplace and How to Comply

Posted on August 8th 2017 by Rebecca Watson.

Smoking Regulations for the UK and how your workplace can comply with the law

 

10 years ago on the 1st July 2007 the UK saw a new law, the smoking Ban which made it illegal to smoke in public places including areas such as offices, factories, pubs and restaurants. This ban was put into place by the government to reduce passive smoking and protect individuals in public places and the workplace from second hand smoke.
