||Promoting smoking cessation at the workplace - Results of a randomized controlled intervention study
||Feb. 1993, Vol.35, No.2, p.121-126. 20 ref.
||In a study of a three-month smoking cessation programme, eight work sites were randomly assigned to an intervention or a comparison condition. The intervention programme included consultation for employers on the adoption of a nonsmoking policy, training for nonsmokers to provide assistance to smokers attempting to quit and cessation classes for smokers. Assessments carried out one and six months after the intervention was completed showed that smoking cessation rates were higher in the intervention companies than in the comparison companies. Cessation was highest among workers whose co-workers frequently asked them not to smoke, and among those who worked with a high proportion of nonsmokers.
