Florida has changed the law on vaping indoors in the workplace. As of July 1, 2019, the use of e-cigarettes in the workplace is no longer allowed under the Florida Clean Indoor Air Act. (FCIAA) Although vaping is safer than smoking cigarettes, there is still much research yet to be done about its health effects.
But aside from your employees, what does this mean for your facility? Much like smoking cigarettes, vaping can leave a residue on walls and surfaces. Employees may also spill the contents of the vapor cartridges onto surfaces, contaminating them with nicotine. Resale value declines when it is known that buildings or equipment have been exposed to sources of nicotine.
Not only will your facility stay cleaner, but employees stay healthier! Employees who do not use nicotine products no longer have to be exposed to vaping going on around them. This is a huge win not only for a cleaner facility but for cleaner air for those who do not partake in these activities.
