Smoking Shelter Regulations

To comply with the UK smoking ban in enclosed spaces, smoking shelters must not be substantially enclosed. What this means is that no more than 50% off the shelter should be enclosed. To achieve this, sides of the shelter can be open whist still having a roof to provide a shelter.

There is no obligation to provide smoking shelters in workplaces or places of public use. However many employers and businesses such as pubs and clubs do want to provide smoking areas for their employees and customers to use. Should an organisation not wish to provide a smoking shelter then they are not obliged to so. However, by providing a smoking shelter in a designated smoking area this can have many benefits. Smokers are benefited as they have somewhere to smoke and non smokers are benefited as there is only smoking in the designated smoking area.
