Abstract [en]

Smoking is a health problem with a negative impact on virtually all body organs. Smoking can cause, for example, lung cancer, cancers in other organs and cardiovascular disease. There is also a social aspect of smoking. If individuals have many smokers in their environment, the risk to start smoking is increased, and for those who already smoke the chance of quitting will be less. Many municipalities today face smoke-free working to reduce smoking and passive smoking adverse effects. The Kristianstad municipality has not introduced smoke-free working. The purpose of this study was to investigate the employees in Kristianstad municipality attitudes to smoke-free working hours as a basis for a change. The method used was a quantitative cross-sectional study by questionnaire. The data collection was conducted in four administrations with a web questionnaire and the number of respondents was 207. The results showed that a majority of the employees in Kristianstad municipality wants to introduce smoke-free working. It was concluded that smoke-free working has strong links with smoking habits, the social environment and education.
