Most enclosed workplaces within Victoria become smokefree on the 1st of March 2006. However, if your workplace has yet to become smokefree, Quit Victoria has templates that you can tailor to your organisation's needs.
Congratulations on taking the first step to make your organisation smokefree. The sample smokefree template allows you to develop a policy with suggested positions for your organisation. Whilst Quit has provided suggested statements on e-cigarettes and smoking breaks, there are areas within the template where you can insert your preferred timings for when the policy takes effects, where and when designated smoke breaks should be allowed and clear smokefree areas within the workplace.
The template is available for download here
