Tobacco

Tobacco use is the single most preventable cause of disease, disability, and death in the United States. We are committed to working hard to help people quit smoking and to reduce involuntary exposure to secondhand smoke.  Here are some examples of how we work with our partners to promote tobacco free worksites.

  • Policy development for worksites
  • Quit resources for employees: we can provide you with Maine Tobacco Helpline resources as well as a variety of other quit tips for employees.

 

Policy development and implementation

  • According to Maine State law, all Maine worksites are required to have a written smoking policy.  Click here to view some sample policies to help get you started.
  • Free tobacco-free signage: Once your policy is in place, we can help you with signage for both your employees and your patrons.
