Whitireia campuses will be smokefree

Posted on December 20, 2012

​2013 will be getting off to a positive start at Whitireia with all our campuses being smokefree from 1 January – this includes indoors, outdoors, all campuses and all grounds.
Whitireia is committed to providing a positive, healthy learning and work environment for staff, students and visitors.  To achieve this, we are asking that staff and students all play an active role and take responsibility for the success of our new smokefree environment.  
A number of people may use this as an opportunity to give up smoking – this is their choice.  Support for staff and students who do decide to ‘quit’ as a result of this change will be supported.  Support will be offered through the following established cessation programmes:

• Quitline, 0800 778-778, www.quitline.org.nz
• Aukati KaiPaipa http://www.aukatikaipaipa.co.nz/contact-us
• Vitae, 0508 664 981 http://vitae.co.nz
• Your doctor or health professional
Any questions or concerns regarding Whitireia campuses being smokefree can be emailed to healthandsafety@whitireia.ac.nz
