Our smokefree pack, smokers beware!
This week HM Government sent us our smokefree pack (yes they spell it as one word) in anticipation of England becoming smoke free on Sunday 1 July 2007. From this date on...
"it will be against the law to smoke, or permit others to smoke, in virtually all enclosed public places and workplaces in England".
Its interesting to note that employers are responsible for premises and vehicles covered under the law and are legally required to display the required signage. Our smokefree pack included several neat stickers to ward off potential smokers.
Even if you work from home you may be required to follow the new law if you have visiting clients or someone else from outside the household works in the premises.
