PICTURED ABOVE: Stephanie Maciejewski, Associate Director, Medical Outcomes Specialist at Pfizer, Inc., provided ‘Beat the Pack’ train the trainer program for staff at St. Monica’s, CenterPointe and Cornhusker Place rehabilitation centers.  This training will assist employees and clients who are interested in quitting.  These facilities recently adopted a tobacco-free campus policy.

In Lancaster County, all employees are protected from secondhand smoke either by the Nebraska Clean Indoor Air Act or the Lincoln Smoking Regulation Act.

Smoke/Tobacco-Free Campus

TFLC recognizes those businesses that have chosen to make their entire campus smoke/tobacco-free. Some businesses choose to extend this policy to cover business vehicles. If you are interested in developing a smoke/tobacco-free campus policy, visit our toolkit and business list or learn how a local business developed their policy

and how this policy facilitated an employee to quit tobacco use.

Smoke-Free Entrances

Walking through secondhand smoke at entrances is not only
unpleasant for clients and employees, it is also a proven health hazard. To eliminate this exposure at workplace entrances, employers can choose to implement their own smoke-free entrance policies. See our brochure in English and Spanish.

Tobacco Compliance Checks

Tobacco compliance checks are held in Lincoln and Lancaster County with law enforcement, youth and the Lincoln-Lancaster County Health Department, working together to reduce the sale of tobacco products to minors.
