Indoor ban on e-cigs unlikely

Despite the World Health Organisation calling for e-cigarettes to be banned in enclosed spaces, the Department of Health has confirmed that it has no proposals to legislate for this. It is understood that the Welsh government may introduce its own restrictions for use in enclosed public spaces.

None of this affects each employer’s ability to make a policy decision on whether e-cigarettes should be prohibited at individual workplaces. PHSC’s experience to date is that the majority of employers who have considered this issue have decided to treat the use of e-cigarettes in the same way as ordinary tobacco.
