Tobacco Free Workplace
Providing resources to help your employees quit using tobacco is the single most effective health benefit you can provide to your employees.
Tobacco use results in massive costs to the state as a whole and to employers in particular. Smokers consume more health care resources, experience greater job absenteeism, and tend to be less productive while at work. The estimated costs to the health care system for treating smoking-related illness are more than $369 million in Utah. Tobacco cessation reduces your employee's risk of getting lung cancer, heart disease, heart attack, and upper respiratory infections. Reducing the risk of these diseases will reduce health care costs. www.TRUTHAgainstTobacco.com
