No Smoking Signs

Get Commonplace and Customized No Smoking Signs for Your Business

What may have started out as a California trend more than 18 years ago is now the nation-wide norm: most states now ban smoking in a wide range of indoor environments including bars, restaurants, workplace offices, malls, entertainment venues and more. Many states and municipalities have also banned smoking in outdoor spaces outside of building entrance / exit ways, school zones, and picnic areas.

What may have started out as a California trend more than 18 years ago is now the nation-wide norm: most states now ban smoking in a wide range of indoor environments including bars, restaurants, workplace offices, malls, entertainment venues and more. Many states and municipalities have also banned smoking in outdoor spaces outside of building entrance / exit ways, school zones, and picnic areas.

Metal No Smoking Signs Withstand the Outdoor Elements

While many believe the regulations, its corresponding no smoking signage helps improve people’s health and the overall air quality, keeping up with the changing laws causes some confusion. The federal government has declared smoking restrictions a local or state issue so there is no federal ban on smoking per se or no official federal government no smoking signs. Yet 28 states and counting ban all indoor smoking (even in bars and restaurants), including:

Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Utah, Vermont, Washington, and Wisconsin.

Yet even for these states, exceptions to the law remain for tobacco shops, some casinos, private clubs, and more. Many cities or counties also have smoking restrictions though the state itself may not have a policy.

Better to Post Local Government No Smoking Signs than Make Assumptions

Strategic placement of no smoking signs throughout your property can help ensure that local rulings pertaining to smoking are enforced as it is a mistake to assume everyone knows the law. With various states and parts of the world having different guidelines related to smoking, failure to post a no smoking sign within 20 feet of a building entrance / exit way, for instance, could cause problems. Moreover, as the property owner or manager, it is extremely difficult if not impossible to enforce a law if visitors or building residents are not made aware of it by posting no smoking signage.

If you own or manage a property that wants to limit outdoor smoking, such as people congregating by doorways to smoke or smoking near dining areas, posting outdoor no smoking signs may be a good option. Even better, pair outdoor no smoking signs with signs for designated smoking areas equipped with appropriate ashtrays or cigarette disposal areas so people who do choose to smoke know where to go.
