E-cig users ‘need more frequent work breaks’

20th July 2016 – Employers should consider giving their staff who use e-cigarettes extra breaks and dedicated areas to ‘vape’, according to advice from Public Health England (PHE).

Workers who use e-cigarettes should not be treated in the same way as smokers because it would undermine their resolve to be tobacco-free, the advice says.

Creating vaping policies

The new guide recognises the need for appropriate policies in public places and workplaces to cover the 2.8 million electronic cigarette users in the UK.

It says the framework acknowledges that there is no one-size-fits-all approach and that different considerations would be appropriate for a nursery school and a factory.

However, it sets out 5 principles that will help employers create a suitable vaping policy. These are:

  • Make clear the distinction between vaping and smoking
  • Ensure policies are informed by the evidence on health risks to bystanders
  • Identify and manage risks of uptake by children and young people
  • Support smokers to stop smoking and stay smokefree
  • Support compliance with smokefree law and policies

The evidence on safety

Using an e-cigarette is thought to be around 95% safer than smoking. Passive intake from vaping is a concern, but there is no published scientific evidence of harm to bystanders from exposure to e-cigarette vapour. The risk of harm is extremely low, with laboratory work suggesting that e-cigarette use in an enclosed space exposes others to nicotine at levels about one tenth of that from a cigarette, but little else.

Fears that the young may take up smoking via the e-cigarette route seem unfounded. Among young people who have never smoked, regular use (at least monthly) is 0.3% or less.

The guidance recognises that although e-cigarette use remains controversial, the consenus from public health experts is that e-cigarettes are significantly safer for users than smoking tobacco.

Breaks and vaping areas

It says employers should be aware that e-cigarette users may need more frequent breaks than smokers because vaping takes longer to top up blood-nicotine levels.

It is never acceptable to require vapers to share the same outdoor space as smokers, it says, and e-cigarette users should have their own dedicated area to smoke.

Professor Kevin Fenton, national director of health and wellbeing at PHE says in a statement: “Different approaches will be appropriate in different places, but policies should take account of the evidence and clearly distinguish vaping from smoking.”

George Butterworth, Cancer Research UK’s tobacco policy manager, comments in a statement: “E-cigarettes are still a relatively new product, so it’s understandable that many people and businesses may not know how to deal with them.

“The evidence so far shows e-cigarettes are much safer than tobacco and they have the potential to help people give up a deadly addiction.”

E-cigarettes could cut smoking-related deaths by 21 percent

E-cigarettes could lead to a 21 percent drop in deaths from smoking-related diseases in those born after 1997, according to a study published in Nicotine & Tobacco Research.

The study, funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse, the National Cancer Institute and the Cancer Intervention and Surveillance Modeling Network, found that under most plausible scenarios e-cigarettes and other vapor products have a generally positive public health impact.

Multiple studies have sought to assess the impact of e-cigarettes on public health, with conflicting results. Earlier this year a University of California study of high school students found that those who used e-cigarettes were more than twice as likely to also smoke traditional cigarettes.

The latest study differs from prior ones because it summarizes patterns of use from national data, the authors said. Previous studies have used local data that may have unusual patterns and are not necessarily representative of the whole country.

The study distinguishes between youths who vape who would not otherwise have taken up any nicotine product, and those who vape, who would otherwise have smoked cigarettes. When both those populations are taken into account, the benefit outweighs the harm, according to the study.

Many experts believe there are health benefits for smokers who switch completely to e-cigarettes.

“While the data are still not as clear as we would like, we present the entire picture with national data so we think our estimates are as good as we can get,” said David Abrams, executive director of the Schroeder Institute of Tobacco Research and Policy Studies at the Truth Initiative.

Most previous studies count as e-cigarette users anyone who has vaped within the past 30 days. That can include someone who goes to a party and vapes once or twice.

“Those are not the people we are concerned with,” David Levy, a professor of oncology at Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center and the study’s lead author said in an interview. “We tried to get an idea of the number of people who progressed to established use.”

Capture

On May 5, the FDA announced a final rule extending its tobacco authority to include e-cigarettes, pipe tobacco, cigars and hookah. The rule, which becomes effective in early August, requires companies to seek marketing authorization for any tobacco product introduced after Feb. 15, 2007.

Levy and other e-cigarette advocates say excessive FDA regulation could stifle the development of safer products that could more effectively displace cigarettes.

Taking RBA apart.

Installing the pre-wrapped coil.
Place the coil between the posts and wrap the ends around the screws, and tighten up. Once in place, make sure the coil is fixed in the center and lined up with the air hole. Make sure the coil is NOT touching the base.

Position and cut the ends of wire off.

Cut a strip of cotton and make sure it’s not too much, and not too little.

Insert the cotton, and place it in the middle.

Cut the cotton at an angle. Make sure it’s not too short and not too long.

Wet the coil with your e-liquid and adjust the cotton. Warning: Coils must be checked for resistance before they are fired on a device, and re-checked periodically to ensure the resistance remains the same.

TC/VW MODES

The maximum temperature is adjustable between 200°F and 600°F (1 00°C-31 5°C), and atomizer resistance is fired from 0.06Ω to 3.0Ω (TC mode), or 0.1 Ω to 3.0Ω (VW mode). H-Priv can give you great freedom!

ADJUSTABLE INITIAL RESISTANCE

As temperature sensing coils tend to be sub-ohm, the poor contact problem can make a big error, in a way that is not evident when an atomizer is being used for wattage control only. This function is designed to ensure your resistance on the load remains the same. And its adjustable range is ±50 mΩ (± 0.05Ω).

EASY-TO-READ OLED DISPLAY

It presents all key pieces of information, including output wattage, output voltage, atomizer resistance and remaining battery life, etc.

ERGONOMIC DESIGN

With two new buttons and an easy menu, the operation will be more convenient directly adjust wattages, temperatures, or switch wattage memory modes by pressing new buttons.
