On June 26th, 2007, Gov. Kulongoski signed the Clean Air Act, which bans smoking in all enclosed public places, including bars, taverns, and restaurants. The new law will also prohibit smoking within 10 feet of entrances, exits, windows that open, and ventilation intakes of workplaces or public places. The law takes effect on Jan. 1st, 2009. The Oregon Smokefree Workplace Law is designed to protect workers from secondhand smoke, which can cause life threatening diseases.
(1) An employer or entity in charge (EIC), except in those places described in OAR 333-015-0035(6) and (8), shall post signs prohibiting smoking. Signs shall use either the "no smoking" symbol (a cigarette with a diagonal slash through it within a circle) and the words “within 10 feet,” or the words "No Smoking within 10 feet," or both. Nothing in these rules shall prevent an employer from increasing the amount of property where smoking is prohibited beyond the 10 foot requirement or from designating the entire premises as smokefree. Signage may be used without specifically including the words “within 10 feet” if the signage specifies some other restriction greater than 10 feet or designates the entire premises as smokefree. Signs shall be posted prominently at each entrance and exit to the place of employment or public place.
(2) In a cigar bar or smoke shop where smoking is allowed under OAR 333-015-0035(8), the employer or EIC shall post signage at each entrance and exit to clearly state that smoking is allowed in all or some of the premises, and that anyone under the age of 21 for cigar bars and under the age of 18 for smoke shops is prohibited from entering the premises.
(3) All signs used to describe whether smoking is prohibited or allowed in a place of employment or public place shall be placed at a height and location easily seen by a person entering the establishment and shall not be obscured in any way.
