E-cigarette policies: Surveys of schools and workplaces in Wales

Bookmark and Share
  • Release date: 26 March 2015
These reports gather evidence from primary and secondary schools across Wales, and workplaces involved in the Healthy Working Wales, Corporate Health Standard and Small Workplace Health schemes.

The surveys aimed to provide policy makers with some basic evidence on:

  • awareness of the use of e-cigarettes on school and workplace premises
  • whether schools and workplaces have e-cigarette policies
  • the reasons for deciding to develop, or not develop, a policy
  • the nature of the policies and what they cover
  • whether schools and workplaces were using policies for enforcement of the current smoke-free legislation
  • the extent to which e-cigarettes were perceived as normalising smoking behaviour, or acting as a gateway to smoking tobacco.
