ABSTRACT
The author focuses on opportunities offered by the Smoke-free Regulations 2006 for employers. The author asks whether the smoking ban is really a boon for employers. He says that the ban gives employers an opportunity to determine the reasons of employees for smoking and brings light into health issues in the workplace. However, he says that influencing the lifestyles of employees through the ban is not the only way to help staff become happier and healthier. He points out to other work-related issues that cause employees to smoke in the first place.
