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.
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.
TFLC congratulates the businesses that did not sell to minors in the last quarter.
