Tobacco laws and businesses

In South Australia the sale, distribution, use of tobacco and areas where smoking is prohibited is regulated by the Tobacco Products Regulation Act 1997.

Information is available on the following areas:

Smoke-free workplaces

Workplace exposure to passive smoking is a significant occupational health and safety hazard. Smoking is banned in all enclosed workplaces. A smoke-free workplaces guide (PDF 2.81MB) has been developed to assist in workplaces to meet the legal requirements and to support workplaces wishing to go beyond the legislative requirements. A Commonwealth funded initiative, Healthy Workers – Healthy Futures, has also been developed to assist employers in making their workplaces smoke-free.
