1 Mar 2006

This study assesses bar managers’ overall support for workplace smoking bans and their perceptions of the impact of smoking bans on venue revenue and individual rights. A cohort study of bar managers was undertaken to assess any changes in support over time and factors influencing these changes. The cohort was surveyed in the month before the Smoke-free Environments Amendment Act came into effect (November 2004), five months after they came into effect(May 2005) and 11 months after (November 2005). This study reports on findings from all three of these surveys.
