HSW Handbook Consultation: Smoke-Free University

Human Resources have been working on a revised version of the Smoke-free University HSW Handbook chapter.

The key changes to the chapter for noting are  –

  • The inclusion of e-cigarette products in the scope of the chapter
    This is in response to a change in the legislation.  As of 31 March 2019, e-cigarette products in SA are also now regulated through the Tobacco and E-Cigarette Products Act 1997.
    The new laws cover all e-cigarette products (including e-cigarettes and accessories such as cartridges and liquids) and tobacco.
  • Removal of the requirement to provide information during a local induction and capturing a record on the School/Branch/area Training Needs Analysis.
    Information to inform staff, students and visitors of a “Smoke-free University” will be provided through campus signage, the University induction (for staff) and the HSW Website.


It would be appreciated if you could review and provide any feedback/suggested amendments to the HSW Team

via email using track changes before COB – Friday 10 January 2020.

Further information

Should you wish to discuss any of the changes or requirements please do not hesitate to contact your Senior HSW Advisor.
