Tobacco-Free Policy Frequently Asked Questions

Published May 4, 2022

On April 21 Newport News Shipbuilding announced plans to become a tobacco-free workplace in support of our No Fail Mission to improve performance across every organization and every team with a focus on the health and safety of our shipbuilders and our work environment. As a result, beginning July 11 NNS will prohibit the use of tobacco products on company property and during company time.

To help employees prepare for the change, frequently asked questions have been collected to provide answers and address common concerns. Employees are also encouraged to take advantage of tobacco cessation programs available through the company’s health and wellness benefits.
