Tobacco smoke is a major source of indoor air pollution and secondhand tobacco smoke increases the risk of developing lung cancer. On October 2, 1990, the Sacramento County Board of Supervisors approved the Sacramento Clean Indoor Air and Health Protection Ordinance (Section 2, Chapter 6.84) which regulates smoking in an enclosed space at a place of employment.
Along with the California Labor Code Section 6404.5, the State created a uniform statewide standard to restrict smoking in the workplace to decrease or eliminate the harmful effects of exposing employees to tobacco smoke.
Environmental Management Department staff respond to complaints received regarding smoking in any workplace within the unincorporated areas of Sacramento County.
