Anti-smoking campaigns

Smoking is one of the biggest causes of preventable death and disease in the UK.

Some of the health benefits from stopping smoking occur relatively quickly, and anti-smoking campaigns encourage and support smokers who want to quit.

Operatives smoking on or around site, not only gives a potentially bad impression, but can also have a detrimental health impact.

 At a number of sites, the promotion of healthy living and healthcare was embedded in the culture, and extended beyond the workforce, to their families and local children.

Below are examples of how poster campaigns were used to encourage anti-smoking:

  • An anti-smoking poster competition was held for local schoolchildren, with Ivor Goodsite fun pack prizes given out;
  • Prominent posters were also displayed in smoking areas and the site canteen.
