Smoke-Free Site

A smoke-free policy bans smoking of any kind on the property, including but not limited to: cigarettes, cigars, pipes, and electronic cigarettes. The policy should cover the entire property.  A smoke-free policy is a great first step toward gradually shifting to a tobacco-free environment. 

This WellSpot has implemented a smoke-free policy.

Tobacco-Free Site

The foundation for WellSpot designation is centered on tobacco-free environments.  A tobacco-free policy prohibits use of all tobacco products on an organization’s property.  This includes tobacco in all forms, as well as any type of smoking device.
