No Smoking Policy Statement

42.1 Position Statement

42.1.1 Smoking is not permitted in any University building or vehicle. The University’s definition of smoking extends beyond traditional cigarettes to also cover e-cigarettes, which are also not permitted to be smoked in any University building or vehicle. For the avoidance of doubt, e-cigarettes include personal vaporizers and electronic nicotine delivery systems.

42.1.2 Anyone wishing to smoke is asked to be mindful of others and to make every effort to eliminate or minimise the risk of passive smoking. Individuals should not smoke near doorways, open windows, air intakes and high pedestrian traffic areas/thoroughfares.

42.2 Scope

42.2.1 This policy applies to all staff, students, visitors and contractors and will be applied fairly and uniformly throughout all University locations.

42.2.2 The University’s No Smoking Policy is available in full at: https://www.gla.ac.uk/myglasgow/humanresources/all/health/smoking/.
