Abstract

Introduction: Initiatives for smoking cessation (SC) at workplace have become more prominent due to both health and safety risks associated with smoking. We aimed to determine 6-month successful SC rates of a group of employees who participated in a SC program as they worked in a workplace that exhibited high risk of fire and explosion.
