Health - From a public health
standpoint, employing a cigarette smoke
detector in a problem washroom serves several purposes. First,
by eliminating smoking in enclosed areas, the presence of second-hand smoke
is decreased. Next,
less exposure to smokers decreases peer pressure
that drives teens to start smoking. Third,
with decreased opportunity to smoke in washroom, more people
of all ages may make the choice to quit.
Line - Monitoring a restroom and
following up on complaints regarding smokers is
expensive. Data places the annual cost for
these daily tasks at roughly $6000 annually*, so
cigarette smoking detectors pay for themselves
very quickly**. With the increasing cost
of health care premiums for smokers, long run
savings on a washroom smoke detector if smokers are encouraged to quit are
possible as well.
