Required hours between shifts

I have heard 2 different stories as to the amount of time employees must be given between shifts. One version is that legally there must be 8 hrs from the end of one shift to the beginning of the next shift. The other, that 10 hrs. is the requirement. What does the state law in Washington state require?

Smoking area distance from Private employer building

I am a safety coordinator at an aerospace company in California and looking to find any laws which state a specific distance required to have smokers away from the building.
