Pulling out of Pak’n’Slave Kilbirnie at about eleven last night I noticed a guy having a fag while respraying the dotted white line in the middle of the road. It seemed ideal – the job required him to be out late at night, standing in the road, working with some kind of industrial paint. Surely by smoking he wasn’t introducing any health risk that wasn’t there already? If your job happens outside at unsociable hours and is risky anyway, they should let you smoke.
How many jobs are there where you can still smoke on duty?
