Should I be able to vape at work?

Employers should have their own policies, but we’d encourage them not just to add “e-cigarettes” to their existing tobacco policies, because vaping is very different to smoking tobacco. Vaping is at least 95% less harmful than smoking and represents an opportunity to help millions of smokers switch to a far less harmful alternative. If those smokers are your staff, helping them make the transition by being more permissive around vaping could be a really significant step and help them improve their health. The UKVIA is happy to provide advice to companies who would like to make this change.
