As we welcome the new year, we remind all staff that Monash supports a healthy smoke-free environment with smokingnot permitted on any Victorian campus, including buildings and grounds.
By going smoke-free, Monash is supporting the health of its students, staff, contractors and visitors.
We understand that being a smoke-free campus can present difficulties for some of our smokers, so to support those who wish to reduce or cease smoking, a range of support services are available through the University Health Servicesand Counselling.
Staff can also take advantage of the free QUIT programs on offer by simply registering their interest at the Smoke FreeMonash website.
I have attached for your information a copy of the rebranded QUIT poster and would appreciate if you could please print and post colour copies of this poster on your local noticeboards and in tea rooms and other prominent locations.
It would also be appreciated if you could include this information in your local area newsletters and raise it at staff meetings for information.
