Oregon's Smokefree Workplace Law
Oregon's Smokefree Workplace Law

Oregon's Smokefree Workplace Law protects nearly every Oregon employee from the health risks of secondhand smoke.

"Every Oregonian benefits from this law," said Dr. Bruce Goldberg, director of the Oregon Health Authority. "Employees will be able to punch in without endangering their health, businesses will save money on maintenance and sick time costs and the public will have more smokefree choices. Laws like this are proven to help smokers quit. This is a monumental change for Oregonians."

The Oregon Indoor Clean Air Act (ICAA) protects workers and the public from secondhand smoke at work and in public places. House Bill 2726 amended the ICAA as of June 30, 2011. The law includes a mandate to the Oregon Health Authority to promulgate new rules to implement the new provisions.

The Oregon Health Authority, Public Health Division, has amended the Oregon Administrative Rules (OAR) to implement HB 2726 and improve administration of the ICAA.
