  • 1. Tobacco Smoke Exposure Page 1 of 9 © PA Services Group - SMARTsafe 2013 Document Number: ST078 Revision 2013 1.0 Tobacco Smoke Exposure SAFETY AWARENESS KEPT SIMPLE SMARTsafe Safety Talks – ST078 This pack contains: • 6 - Page Talk Text • 7 - OHP Presentation Slide Pack Using the talks (Extract “How to Present Safety Talks”): Plan which topic you want to discuss with your team. Read through the script before you hold the meeting to familiarise yourself with the material. Start the talk with a comment that makes the topic relevant to the team. For example, if you have seen a number of people using ladders incorrectly, use this as your opening comment. Follow the script but don’t read straight from the page. The script is only a prompt and it will sound better if you use your own words. Ask the questions as they appear in the script. It is important you do this because they are a lead in to the next section of your talk. Give the team enough time to answer the questions. Safety talks can be boring for the team if you are the only one talking. Hand out the information sheets as they appear in the script. Don’t hand out all the information sheets at the start of the talk otherwise there is a temptation for the team to read ahead and not listen to the points you are making. Collect the information sheets at the end of the talk so they can be used again.

Tobacco Smoke Exposure Page 4 of 9 © PA Services Group - SMARTsafe 2013 Document Number: ST078 Revision 2013 1.0 Some examples of why tobacco smokers feel it can be a good thing are: It is enjoyable It helps them to think It is relaxing It keeps their weight down They enjoy the taste It relieves stress They can socialise with other smokers It gives them something to do with their hands Put on your imaginary ‘BAD’ hat and tell me why smoking tobacco is a bad thing. Hand out sheet 2 – The “BAD” Hat Some examples of why smoking tobacco can be a bad thing are: It tastes unpleasant It smells unpleasant It’s harmful to your health It’s antisocial to non-smokers It’s expensive It adversely affects fitness It’s addictive It doesn’t look good That was good. I just want to remind you that there are no right and wrong answers. There are lots of reasons why some people smoke and others don’t. Their reasons can often be the same, such as taste – but some like the taste and others don’t. WHAT IS IN A CIGARETTE AND TOBACCO SMOKE Cigarettes are the most common source of tobacco smoke in the workplace. They contain about 3000 chemicals and have been classified in Group A carcinogens (pronounced CARSIN-OH-JENS). This means they have been known to cause cancer in humans. Let’s keep it simple: “Can anyone name the three main substances in cigarettes and tobacco smoke that can cause health risks?” Hand out sheet 3 – The three main substances in cigarette and tobacco smoke that can cause a health risk The three main substances that are a health risk are: tar; nicotine; and carbon monoxide.

Tobacco Smoke Exposure Page 7 of 9 © PA Services Group - SMARTsafe 2013 Document Number: ST078 Revision 2013 1.0 However, for any number of reasons, such as a high number of employees or clients who smoke, elimination may not be practicable in your workplace. If this is the case, then specific areas should be designated for smoking and the rest of the workplace should be smoke-free. The steps you should take to start a smoking policy are: establish a working party with representatives from all groups; decide where and when smoking will be allowed; set dates in advance of when changes will occur; make the changes gradually; signpost areas clearly and provide cigarette disposal facilities; and explain the reasons for the policy and its objectives (health risk and legal liability) Remember, it is important to respect the rights of both smokers and non-smokers. ISSUES ASSOCIATED WITH WORKPLACE SMOKING Whether you are an employer or employee, smoker or non-smoker, you might like to know more about: legal issues, such as Occupational Health & Safety, workers’ compensation and passive smoking laws; the health risks of ETS; your rights in the workplace; assessing the risk of ETS in the workplace; help to quit smoking; and assistance to develop a smoke-free policy. “What steps could you take to start a smoking policy?” Hand out sheet 6 – Risk Assessment and Policy Development Hand out sheet 7 – Issues Associated with Workplace Smoking This document is a partial preview.
