State-Specific No Smoking Signs and Regulations

Smoking can present many potential hazards in the workplace. Jobsites and workplaces that have combustible gas on premise may be required by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to post no smoking or open flame signage.

Besides any immediate hazards such as potential explosions, smoking can be a serious long-term health risk. Many states have banned smoking in the workplace, in restaurants, and in bars.

State No-Smoking Regulations

image of specific no smoking signs These no smoking regulations vary by state in both the extend of the restrictions and in how workers and patrons are notified of the regulations.

No smoking regulations can even vary within a specific state. For example, in New Jersey the legal age to purchase a tobacco product is 19 years old, but in several municipalities the age has been raised to 21.

The importance of displaying no smoking signs that accurately display a regulation’s information, complying with applicable laws and health code regulations, is often a necessity.

The following table represents the most recent information available online related to state laws regarding smoking regulations in the workplace, in restaurants, in bars, and other areas such as public spaces.

Each state may have additional and/or more accurate information available to its residents through its government offices, websites, and other resources. SafetySign.com cannot guarantee the accuracy of these specific regulations, and strongly recommends the end user of no smoking signs to check official sources before purchasing and installing these signs.
