Indiana Tobacco Quitline 1-800-QUIT-NOW

Quitline > Employers Employers

If you could have a safer, cleaner and healthier workplace, would you? If you could cut health care costs and reduce productivity losses to illness, would you? Making your business smoke-free saves lives and saves you money.

Indiana employers are impacted greatly by the burden of tobacco use. The average annual health care cost associated with tobacco use in Indiana is $2.2 billion; plus the average annual cost burden due to lost productivity related to smoking in Indiana is $2.6 billion.

Going smoke-free lowers the risk of fires and accidental injuries, which can reduce your insurance costs. Smoke-free businesses have negotiated for lower fire and property insurance premiums, with some businesses winning reductions of 25-30%.

Everyone benefits when the air is cleared of secondhand smoke - even smokers. Workers become healthier. Healthier workers miss less work, are more productive and have lower healthcare costs. Smoke-free initiatives are good for your workers' health - and that's good for your bottom line.
