It’s the Law – ICAA Decals are Available at No Charge
Oregon’s Indoor Clean Air Act (ICAA), protects workers and the public from secondhand smoke at work and in public places. Beginning January 1, 2016 people may not smoke, aerosolize or vaporize any inhalant in workplaces, restaurants, bars and other indoor public spaces in Oregon. The law also prohibits the use of smoking and inhalant delivery systems within ten (10) feet of doors, accessibility ramps, windows that open and air intake vents.
Business are required by the law to post signs that say, “No Smoking or Vaping” at all: building entrances and exits, accessibility ramps, windows that open, air intake vents, and outdoor seating or dining areas that are within 10 feet of entrances/exits. Washington County is providing these decals free of charge to business owners. If you would like decals for your business, please contact Ida Hecker at email@example.com or call 503-692-0780.
Without proper signage you could be found in violation of the law. If the violation is not remediated, a business could face fines of up to $500 per violation per day (to a maximum of $4,000 per 30-day period), as well as the possibility of other legal action.
If you have any questions about the ICAA please contact Gwyn Ashcom, the Washington County Tobacco Prevention Coordinator, at Gwyn_Ashcom@co.washington.or.us.
