Overall objective: Assure tobacco-free environments for Healthy Maine Streets

Program Goals:

  • Comply with or exceed existing state laws on tobacco-free worksites

Some things you can do to go tobacco free:

  • Smoke free workplace policies
  • Add policies on other kinds of tobacco uses for a tobacco free worksite
  • Expand smoke free zones to protect entrances and air intake (HVAC) to your building or office
  • Find and promote local tobacco cessation resources and support groups
  • The Maine Tobacco Helpline is for people who want to quit – and people who want to help support friends and family, too
