Smoke Free Policy

Purpose

This smoke free policy has been developed to protect all employees, customers, suppliers and visitors from exposure to secondhand smoke and to assist compliance with the Health Action 2006.

Exposure to secondhand smoke increases the risk of lung cancer, heart disease and other serious illnesses. Ventilation or separating smokers and non-smokers within the same air space does not completely stop potentially dangerous exposure.

Policy

It is the policy of Reagent Ltd that our workplace is smoke-free, and all employees have a right to work in a smoke-free environment. The policy came into effect on Sunday 1 July 2007. Smoking is prohibited in all enclosed and substantially enclosed premises in the workplace. This includes company vehicles. This policy applied to all employees, customers, suppliers, contractors and visitors.

Implementation

Overall responsibility for policy implementation and review rests with the Managing Director. However, all staff are obliged to adhere to and support the implementation of the policy. The person named above shall inform all existing employees of the policy and their role in the implementation and monitoring of the policy. They will also give all new personnel a copy of the policy as part of their Induction Training.

Appropriate “no-smoking” signs are clearly displayed at the entrances to and within the premises, and in all smoke-free vehicles.

Non-compliance

Local disciplinary procedures will be followed if a member of staff does not comply with this policy. Those who do not comply with the smoke-free law may also be liable to a fixed penalty fine and possible criminal prosecution.

Their customer services were very helpful, sending us all the lab reports we needed, before we even bought from them. Then, once we ordered the product came very quickly ( the next day!)

Parcel arrived on the day of promised delivery, packaging very secure, all in all probably the best company I've had the pleasure of working with in many years. Reagent seems to put the customer first. Thank you again.

Outstanding. It was my first time buying restricted chemicals. I called for advice, and despite only buying a small quantity I got a friendly response, really good advice, and what I and ReAgent needed to do to comply with the law. Delivery was next day, which I wasn't expecting.

Called them, placed an order for a drum of MEK in the afternoon and 24 hours later the drum was delivered, what was more impressive was the back up documentation including handling information from a health and safety point of view, this without me having to request it. we will be using them again for sure.
