Workplace Quit Smoking Program
The Workplace Quit Smoking Program is for Queensland workplaces with workers in blue collar occupations who smoke and are interested in stopping. The program is free and is a good opportunity to support your workers to quit smoking.
The program combines the use of behavioural counselling (delivered by the Quitline service) with nicotine replacement therapy such as patches, gum and lozenges.
