Submitted: 22 April, 2014
Please describe how you have encourged your staff to stop smoking and reduced other risks in the workplace to respiratory health over the last year. There is a 2000 character limit when completing this section.
Newcastle University run an ongoing smoking cessation campaign named Quit It. Smoking cessation support is offered to staff and students and promoted through the keep well @ ncl website and via postcards and posters placed around campus and in every student bedroom.
Staff are encouraged to attend sessions during work time and sessions are supported by our local NHS Stop Smoking Officer.
In addition to the ongoing Quit It campaign we also focused on and encouraged staff and students to sign up to the the 2013 Stoptober campaign. To help increase awareness of the campign and suuport available we negotiated with the Stoptober promoters to have the giant stoptober wheel take a route through campus as part of the Newcastle leg of its national tour.
