Quit Smoking Program
Tobacco reduction is an intrinsic element of a comprehensive approach to workplace health promotion. Workplaces that comply with non-smoking legislation are respected in the community. Those that go beyond these requirements by offering ‘Quit smoking’ support display an even greater commitment to the health and welfare of their employees.
The smoking cessation program aims at creating a context or community that addresses not only the health hazards related to smoking but also the reframing of personal believes around the so called benefits or myths of smoking. Ultimately, this program aims to help employee to free themselves from smoking altogether.
Despite reductions in smoking rates in recent years, smoking remains by far the No. 1 cause of premature death. Smoking is a significant risk factor for six of the eight leading causes of death. It kills 5.4 million people a year - an average of one person every six seconds - and accounts for one in 10 adult deaths. Thus, up to 50% of all tobacco users get killed by it.
