Chester County Health Department's Tobacco Control Program Offering Free Services to Local Businesses

The Chester County Health Department's Tobacco Control Program is offering free services to local businesses.

  1. Host a Tobacco-Free Living (TFL) workshop at your organization. In this free, 1-hour workshop, employees will discuss the advantages and challenges of becoming tobacco-free, explore the resources available to help them become tobacco-free, and develop personalized plans for preparing to quit. Employees don't have to be ready to quit, only willing to think about quitting. With implementation of the new smoking ban, all employers should help their employees become tobacco-free! After a TFL workshop, we can get you in touch with providers that conduct free, ongoing cessation programs, if you are interested. Click here for more information on this workshop.
  2. Does your business have an established tobacco policy in place? We can also provide free technical assistance to help you develop a tobacco policy or enhance an existing tobacco policy to ensure that you are complying with Pennsylvania's Clean Indoor Air Act (CIAA). The CIAA was implemented on September 11, 2008 and prohibits smoking in most public places and workplaces across the Commonwealth. Click here for more information.
