Get help creating a tobacco-free policy

Philadelphia passed the landmark Clean Indoor Air Worker Protection Law in 2006, protecting Philadelphians from secondhand smoke exposure in most restaurants, bars, and workplaces. Smoke-free policies have since expanded to public and private housing, recreation centers and parks, colleges and universities, and behavioral health treatment settings.


The Department of Public Health works with individuals and organizations to develop tobacco-free policies for:

  • Public and private housing.
  • Colleges and universities.
  • Childcare settings.
  • Private employers.
  • Behavioral health treatment settings.


If you would like help developing a tobacco-free policy, email gethealthyphilly@phila.gov or call (215) 685-5693.
