Workplace Tobacco Management Project

 

Overview

The Workplace Tobacco Management Project aims to increase awareness and support implementation of workplace tobacco management policies, as well as reduce the impact of smoking behaviour on staff within the mental health, youth, alcohol, tobacco or other drug sectors in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT).

Some key objectives of the project are to:

There are currently nine project sites involved in the project across the ACT, which include organisations involved in alcohol and other drug use, mental health, and young people.

To assist participants to quit smoking, the project provides access to nicotine replacement therapy (NRT), which is available to staff who work at the sites participating in the project.

As part of the project, professional development workshops were held in 2011 to support those who work with people experiencing disadvantage. Participants were able to enhance their skills at embedding tobacco management within their practices and workplaces. The presentations from these workshops are available on the ATODA project information page.

There is also a collection of resources to support tobacco management and smoking cessation. For further information about these resources please refer to the contact details below.

This project is a collaboration between ATODA (lead organisation), the Mental Health Community Coalition ACT and the Youth Coalition of the ACT.
