One of the advantages of an economic downturn is knowing you can hit your staff with things and they won’t run away to other jobs.
Taking advantage of that, Katy Gallagher has announced that the hard smoking staff of ACT Health facilities will need to give up smoking or hike to the edge of their facility’s grounds if they want to light up, from 1 May.
- “ACT Health will provide staff who smoke with free nicotine replacement therapy and they will be able to start this therapy before the policy comes into effect in May this year.”
“Patients admitted to Canberra Hospital who smoke will be assisted by ACTHealth to manage their nicotine dependence while at the hospital through nicotine replacement therapy.”
More disabled smoke alarms, great.
