Cigarette safety

cigarette safety

  • Never smoke in bed
  • Use a proper ashtray – never a wastepaper basket
  • Make sure your ashtray can’t tip over and is made of a material that won’t burn
  • Don’t leave smoking materials unattended. They can easily fall over and start a fire
  • Take extra care if you smoke when you’re tired, taking prescription drugs, or if you’ve been drinking. You might fall asleep and set your bed or sofa on fire
  • Keep matches and lighters out of children’s reach
  • Consider buying child-resistant lighters and match boxes

Top tip

Stub cigarettes out properly and dispose of them carefully.

Put them out. Right out!
