Smoke-free workplaces are good for health and good for business! Smoke-free
indoor environments lead to:
- Lower maintence expenses (carpets, drapes, cloths, paintwork, and ash dispensers)
- Lower insurance premiums (Fire, medical, workers comp, and liability).
- Lower labor costs (absenteeism, and productivity).
All this equals greater profits, a healthier work environment, and a safer work environment.
The society of Actuaries issued a 2005 report finding that secondhand smoke costs the U.S. economy
roughly $10 billion a year: $5 billion in estimated medical costs associated with secondhand smoke exposure,
and another $4.6 billion in lost wages.
Isn't it time you made your workplace smoke-free?
