  4. 4. Queensland Corrective Services (QCS) is committed to providing a workplace for correctional staff that promotes the health and well being of correctional employees, prisoners and visitors to a facility. Smoking is a major source of illness and death in Australia, contributing to more deaths and drug-related hospitalisations than alcohol and illicit drug use combined. It is a major risk factor for coronary disease, stroke, cancer and a variety of other diseases and conditions. Passive smoking (that is, exposure to second-hand smoke) is a public health issue, as it can cause coronary heart disease and lung cancer in non-smoking persons, and induces and exacerbates mild to severe respiratory effects. A study has demonstrated that 44% of non-smoking workers in a corrective services facilities that did not have a smoke free policy had carbon monoxide levels in respired breath equivalent to those of a light to heavy smoker.
  5. 5. Key dates for implementation The following were key dates for implementation of tobacco and smoke free corrective services facilities: September 2013: Commenced communication strategy to advise correctional staff, prisoners, visitors and stakeholders of the implementation of tobacco and smoke free facilities. October 2013: Designated smoking areas in corrective services facilities were reduced. February 2014: Tobacco products available for sale to prisoners were reduced. April 2014: Tobacco and smoking related products were no longer approved for purchase by prisoners.

  10. 10. Supporting the Smoke-Free Prison Environment. (Effective 1 July 2014–25 April 2015) The purpose of this guideline is to inform both registered health professionals and corrections staff of key considerations for managing smoking cessation within the smoke-free prison environment. Smoking cessation support needs to continue as an ongoing core business function of both health and corrections staff in all correctional centres.
  11. 11. Local working groups will continue to make decisions that best suit local correctional centre context and capacity and develop ongoing locally relevant policy and procedures to manage and maintain collaborative smoking cessation support for both staff and offenders. Funded NRT supply from the Department of Health, PHU will cease on 31st January 2015. Until 3rd March 2015, QCS staff and their household members can access the “Quit Smoking …for LIFE!”
