If an employee violates the tobacco policy use the following strategies to address the problem.
The policy affects all ASU faculty, staff, students and visitors.
First and foremost, remain respecful. Because visitors are the most likely people to be unaware of ASU's tobacco-free policy, educating them about the policy is important. Let visitors know ASU has adopted a tobacco-free policy to create a healthy environment for all of our community members.
If you observe policy violations, you can remind the person that ASU is a tobacco-free university and ask the individual to extinguish the cigarette/cigar material if you are comfortable doing so. If a staff member continues to violate the policy, you can report the location and time of the violation to the appropriate department supervisor. Campus police will not be responsible for citing individuals for violating this policy.
Let all employees know about the planned changes in ASU’s tobacco policy as soon as possible, so they are well informed and prepared when the policy goes into effect on Aug. 1, 2013. ASU is changing its smoking policy to improve the health and well-being of all ASU community members. Supervisors should discuss this policy during departmental meetings and include the information and resources on this website in any departmental newsletter.
Employees may use any allotted work breaks to travel off-campus to smoke. However, employees will not be given additional break time for smoking.
If a university member expresses a desire to quit, let them know about the variety of campus and community resources.
After Aug. 1, 2013, smoking will be prohibited on all ASU owned or leased property.
Yes. All owned or leased university property is covered by the tobacco-free policy. Employees may only smoke in their private vehicles when they are not on university property.
If you observe one of your employees violating this policy, you are encouraged to remind the employee about ASU's tobacco-free policy and ask them to extinguish the cigarette/cigar material. If the employee continues to violate the policy, you make take disciplinary actions.
