Mandatory Indiana No Smoking Notice
The Indiana House Enrolled Act 1149, known as the “Indiana No Smoking Law,” requires most employers in the state to post required “No Smoking” signage at all entrances, remove indoor ashtrays and other smoking receptacles, and to direct any person who is smoking to extinguish the cigarette, cigar, or other lighted tobacco item.
Signs are required at all public entrances of enclosed public places and places of employment. Signage must display specific text, reading “State Law Prohibits Smoking within 8 Feet of This Entrance.” Non-compliance with the state’s no smoking law may subject business owners to legal action and judgments from $1,000 to $10,000, depending on the frequency of the violation(s).
As a result of stricter guidelines in the state for smoking in the workplace, Personnel Concepts has developed the Indiana No Smoking Sign. These durable signs are designed to communicate your Company’s policy to protect employees against involuntary exposure to tobacco smoke in the workplace, while meeting the requirements under the new Indiana No Smoking Law.
