Smoke Free Businesses
Is your business smoke-free? The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) puts a $3,391 price tag on each employee who smokes: $1,760 in lost productivity and $1,623 in excess medical expenditures annually. Making your business smoke-free can save you money!
Why be smoke-free?
Many insurance companies offer substantial discounts on life, disability, and medical insurance policies for non-smokers. Further, having a smoke-free workplace may enable a business to negotiate lower fire and property insurance premiums.
