Legislative

smoke freeSMOKEFREE OREGON
Under Oregon's Smoke-free Workplace Law, businesses, with few exceptions, are required to be smoke-free (ORS 433.835-870).  Effective January 1, 2009, smoking is not allowed within 10 feet of building entrances, exits, windows, and air intake vents.

This law protects nearly every Oregon employee from the health risks of second-hand smoke.
