Smoking policy for CHiCE Ice Rink. Effective from Monday 19th November.
Second-hand smoke is a known health hazard. In 2004, the Government’s Scientific Committee on Tobacco and Health reported that the increased risk to non-smokers of lung cancer from exposure to second-hand smoke was 24% and the increased risk of heart disease 25%.
In provisions made under the Health Act 2006, all enclosed and substantially enclosed workplaces and public places will be legally required to be smoke-free.
The following policy has been adopted by S3K Limited to take all possible steps to protect employees from second-hand smoke exposure and to comply with legislative requirements.
We recognise that the health, safety and welfare of visitors, customers, employees, sub-contractors and anyone else directly affected by the operations of CHiCE are of prime importance. These rules apply to all visitors and customers, employees, as well as sub-contractors and they, apply at all times.
No visitors, customer, employee or sub-contractor may smoke in the ice rink, any building, temporary structure or similar which is used by them or on the surrounding grounds within a 25 feet of entrances, exits, windows that open, and ventilation intakes.
This policy also applies to those using eCigatrettes.
