Many businesses lack e-cigarette policies

More than half of UK businesses have no policy on the use of electronic cigarettes in the workplace, according to an International Business Times story citing research by the PMI Health Group.

The study, which questioned 216 personnel managers across large and medium sized UK companies, found that more than 58 percent of them ‘have yet to introduce a policy on electronic cigarette use’.

The research revealed also that 53 percent of employers were not concerned about staff vaping.

Seventy nine percent of the companies that have introduced electronic cigarette policies prohibit their use in all enclosed working environments, in line with cigarette smoking bans.
