No Smoking/No Vaping Signage

The Smoke Free Illinois Act mandates that workplaces and public spaces must have No Smoking signs clearly and conspicuously posted. KCHD has window clings available at no charge to help you meet this requirement. Contact us at to request window clings, or pick up from: 

KCHD has also designed signage that you can use to create your workplace No Smoking/No Vaping outdoor signs. Simply download the PDF and submit to the sign company of your choice. The designs are 10" width x 14" height.

Smoke-Free Workplace Resources​

Smoke-free workplaces are good for health and business. While the number of workers who smoke tobacco or who are exposed to secondhand smoke in the workplace has declined over the past several decades, many workers remain susceptible to the harms of tobacco smoking.

The use of emerging tobacco products, including hookah and electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS) or e-cigarettes, has increased in recent years. Despite the increased use of e-cigarettes and marketing of these products, little is known about long term health effects.

Smokefree workplace policies not only protect workers from the health dangers of secondhand smoke, but they result in a more efficient work environment. Going smokefree in the workplace will also:

  • Lower cleaning and maintenance expenses (carpets, drapes, ducts, paintwork)
  • Lower insurance premiums (fire, medical, worker comp, liability)
  • Lower labor costs

The Smoke Free Illinois Act prohibits smoking and tobacco use in the workplace.

The Kane County Health Department's Tobacco Control and Prevention Program offers no-fee assistance to those who wish to enact tobacco-free policies in their workplace.
