Smoke-Free Legislation

Smoke-Free Legislation

On 1st July 2007, England implemented the Health Act 2006 which made virtually all indoor public places and work places, including work vehicles smoke-free. This ground breaking piece of legislation heralded a major public health advance.

It followed the successful implementation of smoke-free legislation in several countries including Scotland and the Republic of Ireland.

The legislation is designed to protect workers and members of the public from the serious health risks of secondhand smoke. As a result, people working in bars, restaurants, pubs and other workplaces will enjoy breathing fresh air.
