It is for individual organisations and businesses to implement their own policies on e-cigarette use in the workplace. Public Health England has published guidance to support organisations in developing policies around vaping in workplaces and public places and recommend such policies to be evidence-based. The guidance is available at the following link: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/use-of-e-cigarettes-in-public-places-and-workplaces
