Clay County Smoke-free Policy

Map of Minnesota with Clay County identified

Clay County is dedicated to providing a healthy, comfortable, and productive work environment for all our employees.

Smoking and exposure to second-hand smoke increases the risk of heart and lung disease, asthma, and cancer; 

In light of these findings, smoking shall not be permitted in any Clay County owned facility.  This includes work areas, classrooms, conference and meeting rooms, private offices, elevators, hallways, cafeteria, stairs, restrooms, and all other enclosed areas.  This policy also includes all Clay County Fleet Vehicles and Clay County Equipment.  The policy applies to all employees, clients, contractors, and visitors.

Smoking shall be permitted only in designated areas outside any enclosed area where smoking is prohibited so as to ensure that secondhand smoke does not enter the area through entrances, windows, ventilation systems or any other means. 

Copies of this policy shall be distributed to all employees.  “No smoking” signs shall be posted at entrances to all company facilities.

This policy is being announced three months in advance of implementation in order to give smokers time to adapt to the restrictions and to facilitate smooth transition to a smoke-free environment.

This policy will go into effect on November 1, 2005.  If you have questions about this policy please contact Public Health at 299-5220.

The success of this policy will depend on the thoughtfulness, consideration, and cooperation of both smokers and non-smokers.  A drop box will be placed in the mail copy room for employees to report violations of the policy.  All employees share in the responsibility of adhering to and enforcing this policy.
