Smoke Free Tobacco Free Workplace - Inside UW Health, About Us, Employee Handbook (UWHC), Employment Expectations and Policies


smoke free workplaceUWHC is committed to providing a smoke free campus for all UWHC employees, both inside and outside of UWHC's facilities. Smoking and/or use of tobacco products (cigarettes, cigars, chewing tobacco, snuff, pipes, electronic cigarettes, etc.) in any indoor or outdoor areas of all UWHC campuses, buildings and premises is prohibited. This includes all offsite clinics, leased facilities, grounds, parking lots, ramps or in vehicles.

Recognizing the addictive nature of tobacco products, UWHC supports the efforts of smoking employees who choose to quit. Employees wishing for assistance should contact Employee Health Services (EHS) at (608) 263-7535.

Employees who choose to smoke will need to do so off-campus during non-working hours. UWHC employees who violate this policy may be subject to counseling or discipline up to and including discharge from employment.

All employees within UWHC are encouraged to assist in the education and enforcement of compliance with the smoking policy.
