Vaping in the Workplace: A Bigger Issue Than You Think

Vaping in the Workplace: A Bigger Issue Than You Think

As the nation navigates the COVID-19 pandemic, protecting employee health is a top concern. However, one factor influencing this likely isn’t on the radar for many HR leaders yet and it should be: vaping in the workplace.

New proprietary Truth Initiative research shows that vaping in the workplace is a bigger issue than many think. Key findings include:

  • 70% agree that vaping in the workplace is harmful to their health
  • 63% say vaping at work bothers them
  • 63% agree that vaping in the workplace decreases productivity for those who vape

Vaping isn’t harmless, either for e-cigarette users or for those exposed to secondhand aerosol (i.e., vapor).

Download these findings to learn:

  • The health risks of vaping
  • How workplace vaping affects productivity, even when just a few employees vape
  • The impact of workplace vaping on different industries such as manufacturing, IT, retail, health services, and education
  • The gaps in employer policies for vape- and smoke-free workplaces
  • The impact on working parents when a child vapes

Is your company doing enough to help your employees and their families live tobacco-free?
