Voice care

Teachers/lecturers are at least eight times more likely to have voice problems than other workers. This means it is very important for education staff to consider voice care and take steps to prevent problems before they arise.

Smoking

Smoking has been banned in all enclosed and 'substantially enclosed' workplaces in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland since 2007.
