Audience: All current Employees, Staff, Faculty, temporary workers, contractors and all other people employed by Tufts University
Tufts University is committed to providing a healthy, smoke-free workplace for employees. In compliance with the Massachusetts Clean Indoor Air Law (1988), a comprehensive law based on the premise that there should be no smoking in certain public places, no smoking is allowed in University buildings. However, there are some designated smoking areas around the campuses. Designated areas do not allow for smoking in doorways or other areas leading immediately into or out of a University building. Smoking is not allowed within 25 feet of any building. Failure to adhere to established "No Smoking" guidelines may lead to disciplinary action, up to and including termination of employment.
