Smokefree laws accomplish three goals: they protect the public from second-hand smoke exposure; they motivate quit efforts (cessation); and they improve indoor air quality.
Each year, the tobacco industry spends billions to market its tobacco products, attract customers, increase sales and normalise tobacco use. Tobacco advertising, promotion, and sales (TAPS) regulations cut the industry’s reach by limiting where products can be placed, plugged, and pushed.
Tobacco Vendor Licensing is a strategy to reduce tobacco product availability and accessibility, particularly to youth.
Venue managers play a key role in implementing smokefree laws; empowering and educating them is critical to success.
Sample flyers and factsheets from diverse global smokefree initiatives show how literature varies by venues type, including restaurants, sports clubs, government buildings, tobacco retailers and more.
There are many elements that need to be considered when implementing and enforcing a tobacco control law.
