Tobacco Control / Smoke Free

It is against the law to smoke in most enclosed workplaces and public places, including:

  • Offices, factories, bars, restaurants, cafes, hotels and other places of work
  • Schools
  • Hospitals
  • Public places such as shopping centres, churches, community halls, health centres, etc.
  • Most vehicles used for work purposes and public vehicles such as cars, lorries, vans, buses, taxis, trains and minibuses

No smoking signage should be displayed at each entrance to smoke-free premises and in smoke-free vehicles.  No smoking signage is available, subject to availability, from the Environmental Health Department at the Townhall, Enniskillen or Lisnamallard House, Omagh.
