Task Force Finalizes Designated Outdoor Smoking Locations
The Case Western Reserve University task force charged with implementing Ohio's smoking law has finalized the locations of 15 designated outdoor smoking areas on campus.
The designated areas consist of seven locations north of Euclid Avenue and a total of eight south of Euclid, including one outside the BioEnterprise Building and one outside the Cedar Avenue Storage Center.
A campus map with the designated smoking areas marked is available on the smoking issues Web site. All other areas of campus are considered to be nonsmoking locations.
Smoking is not permitted in university buildings, including residence halls, anywhere on campus outside of the designated smoking areas or in university vehicles. In addition, the entire health sciences campus -- all buildings and grounds -- is designated a nonsmoking area.
Case Western Reserve Police and Security Services will continue to enforce the law in nonsmoking areas on campus. Enforcement includes a written warning to employees and campus visitors for the first violation of the ban and a citation for subsequent violations. Employees who disregard the policy will be subject to corrective action through human resources. Violators issued a citation also may be subject to fines.
Information on smoking cessation and other wellness plans continues to be available online. If an employee needs assistance with a smoking cessation program, the employee should contact the Employee Relations Office or the EASE@Work program.
Formed in April 2007, the Smoking Issues Task Force -- consisting of representatives from the General Counsel, Human Resources, Student Affairs, Facilities, Campus Services and University Police and Security Services offices and the Faculty Senate, Staff Advisory Council, Graduate Student Senate and Undergraduate Student Government -- will continue to review various university smoking-related policies. Any additional updates will be made available on the smoking issues Web site.
The campus is invited to the next ITS Open Forum from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., October 18. The event will be held in Nord Hall, Room 310B (rather than the previously announced 410B), and will be led by Colleen Nagy, director, Enterprise Application Services and Margaret Nelson, director, Technical Infrastructure Services. Send questions to Pat Greene.
