On 1st July 2007, England implemented the Health Act 2006
which made virtually all indoor public places and work places,
including work vehicles smoke-free. This ground breaking piece of
legislation heralded a major public health advance.
It followed the successful implementation of smoke-free
legislation in several countries including Scotland and the
Republic of Ireland.
The legislation is designed to protect workers and members of
the public from the serious health risks of secondhand smoke. As a
result, people working in bars, restaurants, pubs and other
workplaces will enjoy breathing fresh air.
