Reducing Exposure to Environmental Tobacco (Secondhand) Smoke
Secondhand smoke causes premature death and disease in children and in adults who do not smoke. Children are more likely to have lung problems, ear infections, and severe asthma from being around smoke. Secondhand smoke causes heart disease and lung cancer. Eliminating nonsmokers’ exposure to secondhand smoke is an important goal of EIPH. One way to achieve this goal is through policy change. Employers are encouraged to adopt policies that make all indoor places smoke-free and to not allow smoking near doorways and entrances. Eastern Idaho Public Health enacted a Tobacco Free Campus Policy in 2009. Our staff has assisted numerous employers with their policy development and implementation. Please contact us if your business is interested in adopting a policy to decrease secondhand smoke exposure.
