It is the policy of University College Dublin that all of its workplaces are smoke- free and that all employees have a right to work in a smoke-free environment.
Smoking and vaping/e-smoking in all forms is prohibited. For the avoidance of confusion, vaping/e-smoking relates to the use of any non-tobacco based device from which material is drawn into the body by inhalation, irrespective of whether or not a vapour is released or the product contains nicotine.
This policy applies to all staff members, students, service users, customers and visitors.
