JTL gives prime importance to the health of its employees whilst at work. This is considered to be a management responsibility equal to that of any other function. As well as recognising that, in order to achieve and maintain the standard required, both management and employee must be aware of and accept their respective responsibilities.

Smoking and passive smoking is medically recognised as being dangerous to health. JTL therefore regards compliance with this policy as an important step in safe-guarding the long-term health of its employees and any visitors to JTL premises.

There shall exist a total ban on smoking at all times within JTL premises unless a designated area is provided.

Where JTL operates from an employee’s home, there can be no insistence upon a complete smoking ban. Employees are however required to respect JTL’s policy on smoking when receiving visitors on official JTL business.
