Abstract

OBJECTIVE: To describe the extent of no-smoking notices, consumption and sales of tobacco in Barcelona's underground transport installations. DESIGN: Descriptive, observation study. SETTING: Community. METHODS: A sample of 54 stations was selected at random. The presence of users smoking, staff smoking, notices about tobacco consumption and tobacco sales were evaluated. INTERACTIONS: Platforms, entrance hall and corridors and/or stairs were observed for at least 5 minutes at each station. MEASUREMENTS AND MAIN RESULTS: Users smoking were recorded in 87% of the observations, and cigarette stubs in 97.5% of observations, whereas company staff were only seen smoking in 5.6%. In 72.2% of the entrances there were tobacco sales-points. The users observed smoking were divided equally between the sexes, although the men were mainly middle-aged adults (64.3%) and the women were mainly young (60.6%). In 64.2% of the observations, some sort of notice was seen. CONCLUSIONS: Both notices and compliance by staff are high, although users habitually consume tobacco. Tobacco sales-points at stations are very common. The findings justify the adoption of specific measures designed to improve compliance with the regulations.
