Our Wakefield stop smoking advisors were out and about this week with the team from Arriva, on their Bus for Life.
We visited Castleford Bus Depot, Wakefield Bus station and Wakefield Bus Depot and met with lots of Arriva staff members and many were keen to stop smoking.
Over the three event locations we performed approximately 60 CO readings and spoke to roughly the same number of staff. We also spoke to many non-smokers who wanted to check their CO readings because of the environment that they work in, but were very reassured by healthy readings.
We are delighted that a handful of people signed up to our service and are now working with a Yorkshire Smokefree stop smoking advisor as they attempt to quit. It was a great experience our team to meet with so many people and to learn more about the dangers of Carbon Monoxide in the workplace, as well as those connected to smoking.
Thanks to everyone who stopped by to chat with us!
