FOI Request - Smoking Ban

Request 101000250517

Can someone tell me who police's the smoking ban for Moray council, and has any of Moray councils employees been caught smoking in council vehicles?

Response 29-05-2014

The Moray Council has a no smoking policy that complies with Smoking, Health and Social Care (Scotland) Act 2005. Each Council vehicle is fitted with a no smoking sticker that has the name and telephone number to report any breach of the act to.

Environmental Health enforces the legislation relating to smoking in certain public places, the Smoking, Health and Social Care (Scotland) Act 2005 and the Prohibition of Smoking in Certain Premises (Scotland) Regulations 2006. No proactive visits are now made after the designated smoking ban post was deleted a few years ago but complaints are investigated.

One member of staff has been reported and disciplined for smoking in a Moray Council Vehicle.
