Smoke-Free Workplaces


The Cambridge Public Health Department and the Boston Public Health Commission led a successful campaign regional between 2001 and 2004 to protect workers in Greater Boston from exposure to environmental tobacco smoke. At that time, smoking was permitted in private workplaces under Massachusetts law.

The goal of the Clean Air Works initiative was to protect all workers in Greater Boston from exposure to environmental tobacco smoke and to educate communities about health risks posed by ETS.
