With the new Indiana Smoke Free Air Law taking effect July 1, Indiana will join 49 other states in protecting workers and patrons from secondhand smoke in the workplace. In an effort to help businesses implement the new law, the Tobacco and Cessation Commission at the Indiana State Department of Health has developed free “Breathe Easy Indiana” toolkits – a great resource, says State Health Commissioner Greg Larkin, to help businesses prepare for the law.
The toolkit includes an employee training guide, business checklist, smoke-free window clings, coasters, posters, and table tents, as well as a quick reference brochure providing basic information regarding the law. Businesses covered by the new law must post signs stating, “Smoking is prohibited within eight feet of this entrance,” or similar language, and must be visible at each public entrance.
