The Producer or Director will, in the interests of preserving the unique character of a site or part of a site, designate smoking areas. Designated smoking areas should not be placed:
- Close to building entrances and opening windows where smoke will blow into a workplace.
- Places where food is served or consumed.
- All staff, visitors and contractors are expected to abide by the smoke-free policy.
- Signage indicating designated smoking areas will be clearly visible.
The smoke-free policy applies 7 days a week, 24 hours a day.
Any contravention of the policy must be investigated as indicated in the Legal compliance section of this policy. Smokers who do not follow the policy may face reimbursing the Company if the Company is fined as a result of a complaint. A breach of this policy may also be dealt with via the Staff Disciplinary Procedures.
Supervisors are required to inform others and enforce this policy, as part of providing a supportive, safe, and healthy environment.
Everyone who works, visits, or has business on Company premises has a responsibility to inform staff, and visitors of this policy. It is expected the policy will be included in induction courses for staff, and in information to visitors.
Complaints must in the first instance be to the person who is smoking. If the situation is not resolved complaints must be in writing to the supervisor responsible for the person who smokes, or to the Managing Director.
