||Protection from environmental tobacco smoke in California. The case for a smoke-free workplace
||12 Aug. 1992, Vol.268, No.6, p.749-752. 32 ref.
||A survey of 7,162 nonsmoking indoor workers in California showed that nonsmokers working where there was only a work-area ban were 2.8 times more likely to be exposed to environmental tobacco smoke (ETS) than those working in a smoke-free work site. In workplaces with no policy or a policy not covering the work area, nonsmokers were over eight times more likely to be exposed to ETS than those who worked in a smoke-free work site. Results indicate that adequate protection of nonsmokers from ETS exposure requires a smoke-free site.
