Tobacco/Nicotine-Free workplaces protect employees and enhance workplace wellness. The SmokeFree Air Act (SFAA) prohibits smoking in places of employment, but does not extend to smokeless tobacco or Electronic Smoking Devices (ESD), such as e-cigarettes. By implementing a tobacco/nicotine-free policy, employers show concern for the health of their employees and support for employees quitting tobacco. Tobacco/Nicotine-Free businesses may also be eligible for reduced insurance premiums and cessation benefits for tobacco users.
