Policy recommendations based on the results of research of "Attitudes, Practices and Beliefs Toward Worksite Smoking Policy Among Business Owners and Public Administrators in Armenia".
A survey was conducted among the top managerial staff of the 243 public and private settings in Yerevan, Gyumri and Vanadzor (Armenia) in June-July, 2005. The research showed that support for implementation of tobacco-free worksite policy among public administrators and managers is very strong. In particular, 95% of the survey respondents supported smoking ban at health, educational and cultural institutions. Eighty one percent showed support for banning smoking in all state and private worksites. The number of employers who supported banning smoking in all state and private worksites was significantly higher among non-smokers than smokers.
