A breath of fresh air in bars

On behalf of NHS Health Scotland and the Department of Health, IOM contributed to a large-scale programme of work evaluating the effect the smoke-free legislation had on fine particulate matter in 105 bars in Scotland and England.

The results of the research found that the nationwide smoke-free legislation had resulted in a substantial reduction in fine particulate matter, ranging from 84-93%.

The evaluation demonstrated improvements in indoor air quality following this legislative intervention and harmful exposure towards bar workers was significantly reduced.
