Katy, TX (PRWEB) April 09, 2013
According to a new survey conducted by the Smoke-Free Texas coalition, 74% of Texans voted in favor for a proposed statewide law, which would make an effort to eliminate smoking in all indoor workplaces. This regulation would affect public buildings, offices, restaurants, and bars. With such an overwhelming amount of support for this legislation, the agents at Hamann Insurance Group want to support local business owners during this possible transition. Establishing a healthier workplace through a non-smoking environment can benefit an organization greatly.
Hamann Insurance Group is dedicated to protecting businesses and individuals from the unpredictable risks brought about each day on the job. They believe that by restricting smoking in the workplace, health and safety can be made a priority, ultimately reducing claims on insurance. Exposure to tobacco smoke is just one of the many hazards smoking and non smoking employees face if it is allowed indoors or near the property. The local agency has provided some reasons why protecting workers from the dangers of smoke can benefit everyone:
Benefits for Employees
- Creates a safe, health conscious workplace.
- Feels like their needs are important as the company makes an effort to create a policy to keep everyone safe and healthy.
- Those bothered by smoke will now not be exposed to it at work.
- Respect in the workplace can be more clearly defined.
Benefits for Employers

- Maintenance costs could go down when smoke is eliminated.
- Cleaner air can be introduced, benefitting everyone’s health.

- The risk of a fire hazard is decreased due to the elimination of smoking.
After a policy is implemented, it is important for business owners to let smokers know their efforts to follow the new regulations are appreciated. In addition, asking nonsmoking employees to support and encourage smokers to lead a healthier lifestyle can benefit the entire atmosphere. Hamann Insurance Group supports the commitment to create healthier and safer workplaces for all employees.
