Pace’s 24/7 Health & Safety vision is that of providing a safe and healthful workplace that supports positive health behaviors, facilitates opportunities to optimize individual health, organizational health, productivity and minimizes risk and liability. In accordance with this philosophy and due to the overwhelming known and substantial health hazards resulting from exposure to tobacco, it shall be the policy of Pace Industries to provide a tobacco-free environment for all associates and visitors effective September 1,2013. This policy covers the smoking of any tobacco product, the use of oral tobacco products or “spit” tobacco, and the use of any other tobacco product (e-cigarettes, snuff, etc.). This policy applies to associates, contractors, and visitors.
