Your employees are provided access to a certified Tobacco Cessation Specialist / Coach that will assist your employees by motivating them to set a quit date and discussing the challenges they are – and will – face with respect to their tobacco cessation efforts.

Providing your employees, the resources

Making the decision to focus on improving air quality indoors, providing resources for employees who smoke or are living with a chronic lung disease will curb rising health care costs, help employees adopt healthier lifestyles, and lower the risk of developing costly chronic diseases.

Preventive PLUS offers a comprehensive toolkit to help employers adopt and implement workplace policies that support a healthy work environment while providing health education resources to support lung health.

Our tobacco cessation program offers strategies, advice, and tools for providing smoking cessation services and support for your employees. Learn how to make a business case to establish smoke free policies and offer an employee smoking cessation program.

Ensure tobacco free environments

All workplaces should be 100 percent tobacco-free. Second-hand smoke is a serious health hazard causing more than 41,000 deaths per year. It can cause or exacerbate a wide range of adverse health effects, including lung cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, respiratory infections, and asthma.

Exposure to second-hand smoke is a common cause of asthma symptoms and can lead to a debilitating asthma episode. Implementing and enforcing a 100% tobacco-free workplace policy will help to ensure employees are breathing safe and healthy air.
