In partnership with agencies throughout the state, PACT also provides technical assistance to businesses, multi-unit housing sites, and municipalities that are implementing or strengthening smokefree policies. A strong smokefree policy takes into consideration issues such as smokeless tobacco products, e-cigarettes, enforcement, and smoking cessation programs for employees or residents who want to quit. The toolkits and model policies below can help you to develop and implement a strong smokefree policy.

Policy details make a difference

  • Does the policy define smoking?
  • Does the policy prohibit all tobacco products (including smokeless)?
  • Does the policy prohibit e-cigarettes and similar electronic devices?
  • Does the policy prohibit indoor and outdoor smoking?
  • How will the policy be communicated?
  • How will the policy be enforced?
  • What is the timeline for implementation?
  • Will cessation programs be promoted?
