Please find below a notice from the Head of Navy Sport R A J Bird Cdr RN regarding “Tobacco Free Temeraire”
“The Smoking and Tobacco Control Strategy for Defence 2017 – 2022 outlines the ambition for Defence to ‘reduce smoking prevalence across the Whole Force to national prevalence levels by 2022 alongside a phased introduction of smoke-free working environments’. In line with the proposed policy, and as the headquarters for Naval Health and Wellbeing, I have been directed by ACNS(Pers) to make HMS TEMERAIRE a ‘tobacco free’ working environment”
With effect 1 January 2019, any personnel on site who wish to use tobacco products will need to exit the Establishment to do so. Those individuals who use vapes can continue to use the shelter provided. This policy will apply 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and this policy will apply to military, Civil Service and contractor staff employed or visiting the Establishment.
