Title Worksite characteristics and changes in worksite tobacco-control initiatives - Results from the COMMIT Study
Bibliographic information June 1997, Vol.39, No.6, p.520-526. 21 ref.
Abstract A survey of worksites participating in the Community Intervention Trial (COMMIT) for Smoking Cessation (conducted in 11 communities in North America) showed that 34% of those that did not have a smoking ban at baseline (1990) had adopted a smoke-free policy by the time of the final survey (1993); the prevalence of policy adoption was higher among worksites employing more female employees and offering other health-promotion activities. 36% of those offering no cessation assistance at baseline were offering cessation resources at follow-up; adoption of cessation programmes was more likely among worksites employing 100 to 249 workers, and among those predominantly employing men, those offering other types of health-promotion activities, and those with a higher rate of turnover.
