California No Smoking Signage Poster Required
The California No Smoking Signage is a labor law posters poster by the California Department Of Industrial Relations. This is a mandatory posting for all employers in California, and businesses who fail to comply may be subject to fines or sanctions.
California law prohibits smoking in enclosed places of employment. Labor Code section 6404.5(c)(1) require all businesses to place suitable signs saying either "No Smoking", or "Smoking is prohibited except in designated areas", at each entrance to the workplace.
California does NOT require that a specific design of no-smoking sign be posted, but only requires that the no-smoking sign be "clear and prominent". Please check to see if your local government has additional requirements regarding no-smoking signage, vaping, or smoking marijuana.
California law states that "An employer or owner-operator of an owner-operated business shall not knowingly or intentionally permit, and a person shall not engage in, the smoking of tobacco products at a place of employment or in an enclosed space."
"'Enclosed space' includes covered parking lots, lobbies, lounges, waiting areas, elevators, stairwells, and restrooms that are a structural part of the building"
"Where smoking is prohibited throughout the building or structure, a sign stating 'No smoking' shall be posted at each entrance to the building or structure."
"Where smoking is permitted in designated areas of the building or structure, a sign stating 'Smoking is prohibited except in designated areas' shall be posted at each entrance to the building or structure."
