This is not regarding smoking, we are a smoke-free facility of course. By definition, we only limit tobacco from being anywhere within the restricted area in manufacturing. Just looking to see if other food manufacturers are entirely tobacco free?

Nothing in pockets or mouth once you leave the lunchroom, period

Because we always have is never an appropriate response!

We have no smoking on site however they can keep them in their lockers to walk across the street on their break

“Will this be on the test?" "Yeah, about the test. The test will measure whether you are an informed, engaged, and productive citizen of the world, and it will take place in schools and bars and hospitals and dorm rooms and in places of worship. You will be tested on first dates, in job interviews, while watching football, and while scrolling through your Twitter feed. The test will judge your ability to think about things other than celebrity marriages, whether you’ll be easily persuaded by empty political rhetoric, and whether you’ll be able to place your life and your community in a broader context. The test will last your entire life, and it will be comprised of the millions of decisions, that when taken together, make your life yours. And everything — EVERYTHING — will be on it.”

IMO, there is no smoke free facilities. Inside the premises, there shall a designated smoke are provided for the smoking personnel.

Recently updated my procedure - smoking only permitted in the smoke shelter which is provided outside. You are not allowed to even light a cig until you are in the shelter. I also updated it to include e-cigs.

we do not allow tobacco use anywhere on company property. Last year that policy was expanded to include vaping and e-cigarettes.

One of our clients just went 100% smoke free in or outside the building and on the the property itself - in order to smoke an employee would have to get in their car and drive off the property entirely.  They thought the blow back would be terrible, but they were surprised that it was very well received and contributed to several people dropping their addiction to smoking.
