FREE 'No Smoking' Templates

The 'smokefree' law was introduced into the UK in 2007, to protect employees and the public from the harmful effects of second hand smoke. Second hand smoke is a serious health hazard, and there is no safe level of exposure. Every time someone breathes in second hand smoke, they breathe in over 4,000 chemicals. Many are highly toxic. More than 50 are known to cause cancer.

What must I do to go 'smokefree'?

If you manage or are in charge of any premises or vehicles that the new law applies to, you will have a legal responsibility to ensure they become and remain smokefree. To be ready for the new law when it comes into effect on Sunday 1st July, you'll need to make sure that:

  • you have all the required no-smoking signs in place
  • your staff, customers, members or visitors are aware that your premises and work vehicles are legally required to be smokefree
  • you have removed and existing indoor smoking rooms

Keeping your premises and vehicles 'smokefree'

Once the new law comes into effect, it will be the legal responsibility of anyone who controls or manages smokefree premises and vehicles to prevent people from smoking in them.

You will have to demonstrate that you have taken reasonable steps to meet the requirements of the new law. These might include:

  • Removing ashtrays
  • Introducing a smokefree policy
  • Training staff to understand the new law and what their responsibilities are.

What signage do I have to display?

All smokefree premises and vehicles will need to display no-smoking signs that meet the requirements of the new laws. Signs will make it clear which premises and vehicles are smokefree and demonstrate that you are taking the necessary steps to meet the requirements of the new law.

To help you out, have prepared some signage for you.
