England Smoking Ban July 1st 2007

I’ve just noticed that the required no-smoking signs for vehicles and premises can now be ordered free of charge from the Smokefree England website.

    It only applies if someone works there who doesn’t also live there, or if you invite people in on business. And it only applies if the room’s only used for business purposes.

    In England you only need to put the stickers on if the vehicle’s used ‘in the course of paid or voluntary work by more than one person (even if those persons use the vehicle at different times, or only intermittently)’. So if you’re the ONLY person that EVER uses it for work then it doesn’t come under the regulations as far as I can see. Logically there should be something to prevent her smoking in YOUR workplace but there doesn’t seem to be.

    In Scotland you need to have the stickers on even if you’re the only user of the vehicle and you don’t smoke. It would be an offence for her to smoke in your van in Scotland.

    Gordon, you can smoke in your own home office as long as you’re the only person who works there and you don’t invite people who don’t live or work there to visit your office.

    If you had an office in your garage and had occasional business visitors there then you couldn’t smoke in it at any time.
