As the nation navigates the COVID-19 pandemic, protecting employee health is a top concern. However, one factor may not be on the radar for many organizations yet, though it should be: the impact of vaping in the workplace. Vaping isn’t harmless, either for e-cigarette users or for those exposed to secondhand aerosol (i.e., vapor). New Truth Initiative research shows that vaping in the workplace is a bigger issue than many think, with 63% of employees saying that vaping at work bothers them.
Join this webinar to hear findings from the research about how workplace vaping affects productivity, even when just a few employees vape; the impact of workplace vaping on different industries; gaps in employer policies for vape- and smoke-free workplaces; and the impact on working parents when their child vapes.
Plus, to react to the growing body of evidence that vaping is harmful to self and others, the University of Iowa will share how their own data from students, faculty and staff sparked a full academic year of focus on the topic. “Vaping: The New Look of Nicotine Addiction” provided campus and community the opportunity to learn from public health and policy experts as well as the researcher and student experience on campus.
