Workplace Policies

Smoking costs your business a lot of money!

  • Businesses pay over $2,000 more per smoking worker in workers’ compensation costs than they do for nonsmokers.
  • Tobacco use costs the Utah economy an estimated $663 million annually in smoking related medical costs and lost productivity.

Creating a workplace tobacco policy:

  • Reduces your medical, property, and compensation loss
  • Reduces liability
  • Protects employee health
  • Increases productivity and morale

Salt Lake County Health Department tobacco experts will visit your workplace and assist you in creating a tobacco policy, assess or improve your existing tobacco policy, and provide free cessation resources.
