Submitted: 29 April, 2015
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.
There were 2 Group Sessions organised in 2014, which were co-led by Occupational Health and the Hounslow Stop Smoking Service, which had a quit rate of 60%. The group sessions consisted of 6 weekly sessions where advice for quit strategies and NRT assistance was provided to those enrolled.
At other sites, one to one sessions were available through Occupational Health as well as signposting to local NHS resources if this was deemed more convenient to the quit attempt.
Events were organised across all UK sites for National No Smoking Day and Stoptober was also advertised to try to encourage GSK employees to quit smoking.
