E-cigarette signage in focus after debate intensifies

E-cigarette signage in focus after debate intensifies
10/06/2015

Over the past few days, the debate around e-cigarettes has intensified with Southern Rail introducing a network wide ban from 26th July and Wales proposing a ban in all public places.

The Public Health Bill proposed by the Welsh government will make it illegal to use electronic cigarettes in the workplace, pubs, clubs and any other public enclosed areas in order to dissuade users in the same way as the ban on tobacco.

Malta, Belgium and Spain all have similar laws in place with regards to e-cigarettes but the rest of the UK currently have no plans to introduce any bans. However, advertising has been targeted with investigations in to TV adverts being carried out and a total ban on any advertisement on social media.

With no widespread legislation in place, businesses are currently taking their own stance on whether to allow employees and customers to use e-cigarettes in the workplace or while out socialising. Southern Rail’s ban follows decisions by Govia Thameslink Railway, Transport for London, Chiltern Railways, ScotRail, South West Trains and East Midlands Trains and MPs have been banned from using them in their offices at Westminster.

For businesses wishing to prohibit e-cigarettes being used on the premises, Stocksigns has four new electronic cigarettes signs available, allowing different combinations of regular no smoking and electronic cigarette permissions. These signs are now available from our web shop at www.stocksigns.co.uk or call the team on 01737 764764 for more details.
