Smoke-Free Public Places
As more and more scientific evidence mounts about the dangers of secondhand smoke, workplaces nationwide are going smoke-free to provide clean indoor air and protect employees and customers from the harmful, life-threatening effects of secondhand smoke.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), involuntary exposure to secondhand smoke remains a common, serious public health hazard that is entirely preventable by adopting and enforcing comprehensive smoke-free laws.
Smoke-free environments are the most effective method for reducing secondhand smoke exposure and decreasing business costs.
The Nevada Clean Indoor Air Act, passed by voters in 2006, requires most workplaces and indoor public places in Nevada to be smoke-free. To learn more about the law, visit the NCIAA webpage.
If your workplace is already smoke-free indoors, and you want to expand your smoke-free policy to include e-cigarettes and/ or a minimum smoke-free distance outside of our workplace near entrances and exits, call us at (702) 759-1270 or email us at TobaccoProgram@snhdmail.org for more information. We can also provide FREE signage in English and Spanish.
