Smoke-free worksites

Health and wellness have a major impact on the bottom line of a business. Although Illinois' smoke-free laws reduce exposure to secondhand smoke and improve the health of tenants, there are additional cost-saving strategies that will reduce tobacco use of tenants at your propertty.

The Chicago Tobacco Prevention Project provides free, customizable programming for worksites such as: quit readiness workshops; roundtables for human resources staff on how to address smoking with employees; and dissemination of materials highlighting the return on investment associated with efforts to address tobacco use among employees.

Evidence demonstrates that enhanced smoking policies result in:
  • reduced building maintenance costs
  • reduced risk of fire
  • reduced harmful exposure to secondhand smoke
  • sustainable changes that will increase employee productivity and save employers money
