Tobacco/Nicotine Free workplaces protect employees and enhance workplace wellness. The SmokeFree Air Act (SFAA) prohibits smoking in places of employment, but does not extend to smokeless tobacco or Electronic Smoking Devices (ESD), such as e-cigarettes. By implementing a tobacco/nicotine free policy, employers show concern for the health of their employees and support for employees quitting tobacco. Tobacco/Nicotine Free businesses may also be eligible for reduced insurance premiums and cessation benefits for tobacco users.

For more information on tobacco free/nicotine free environment policies for schools, parks, businesses, community events, county fairs, rodeos and pharmacies in Iowa, please contact tobcontactus@idph.iowa.gov
