Smoke free law is alive and well

In November 2006, Ohioans passed the Smoke-Free Workplace Act, making Ohio the 12th state to protect all workers and the public from exposure to secondhand smoke in public places.  Approximately 280,000 Ohio worksites are impacted by this law.

To be in compliance with this law, workplaces must prohibit smoking, remove ashtrays and post no-smoking signs with the toll-fee enforcement number (1-800-559-OHIO).  Local health departments have the ability to enforce this law, but the process is complaint-driven and a call must be placed to the toll-free enforcement number to begin the process.
