Worksite Wellness Starts Here!   

Tobacco-Free Worksites


Nothing does more to set the pace for employee health & wellness than a tobacco-free workplace.

  • Low cost

  • Lasting impact

  • Full participation

  • Big returns

  • Support by two-thirds of employees

  • Free technical assistance from local experts

Best practices for a step by step transition to a fully tobacco-free workplace have proven successful at companies all across New York State. Tobacco-free parks, playgrounds, hospitals, college campuses ... and workplaces! A tobacco-free environment is what your customers and employees have come to expect.

A 2013 study in the peer reviewed journal, Tobacco Control, estimated that every smoker costs a U.S. private employer an additional $5,816 annually.
