UKHCA Factsheet: Smoking and Vaping in a Homecare Setting

This document is available to UKHCA members only. Information on how to join UKHCA.

Our factsheet for members on smoking and homecare outlines the main smoking ban provisions across the UK, considers the issues that arise when service users smoke at home and looks at steps to achieving a smoke-free environment for employees. Our factsheet supplements existing guidance with hints on negotiating with users who are reluctant to refrain from smoking and other practical steps to help employers fulfil their obligations to maintain the health of their homecare workers. Revised in December 2020.
