UNE Becomes a tobacco and smoke free campus - July 1, 2014
As part of our dedication to promoting a healthy environment for all students, employees and visitors, effective July 1, 2014, the University of New England will transition to a 100% tobacco-free and smoke-free campus.
UNE’s new policy makes all University campuses smoke and tobacco free, including personal vehicles parked on UNE property. Smoking of tobacco or other substances and use of all tobacco products will not be permitted anywhere and anytime on the University campuses. Only FDA approved nicotine replacement therapy products will be permitted.
A lot of us sit at a desk for extended periods of time and believe it or not this can cause stress on the body. Our Ergonomic Work Station Information and our Work Station Exercises can help you have a more comfortable day.
If you would like to request an ergonomic evaluation, please have your supervisor contact Cat Martins in HR.
