Smoking ban to apply to retailers

14 June, 2007

Retailers will have to comply with the public smoking ban which comes into effect next month.

All businesses and public places go smoke free on July 1 and those who don't comply with the new law could face fines of up to £2,500.

Employers and managers will need to ensure that customers and staff are aware that shops and other enclosed spaces, such as work vans, are smoke free by displaying a no smoking sign. Signs must be at least 70mm in diameter and be in a prominent position at the store entrance. The government also suggests employees are given training to help them understand the new law.
