ComplianceSigns.com has developed signs to meet state requirements and help Indiana businesses comply with the new law. Business owners will find a large selection of Indiana No Smoking signs at ComplianceSigns.com.
Any business not exempt from the law must post signage, remove indoor ashtrays and other smoking receptacles and direct any person who is smoking to put out the cigarette, cigar or other lighted tobacco item. Any outdoor smoking must be at least eight feet away from a public entrance.
Workplaces exempt from the state law include bars, taverns, membership clubs, tobacco retail shops, cigar bars, hookah bars, casinos and satellite or off-track betting facilities.
Owners, managers or other persons in charge of a place of employment or public place are responsible for making sure all employees and customers comply with the law; failing to comply is a Class B infraction. Three or more infractions are considered a Class A infraction. An infraction is a violation of a law that does not subject the person to a criminal conviction or jail time.
Transitioning to a smoke-free business requires planning and education. To help employers have a smooth, controversy free start, the Breathe Easy Indiana toolkit is available for FREE. The kit includes resources to educate employees and customers about the new smoke-free air law and what's expected.
