    I think we should have a say during work hours if they are representing our company , plus it's just a smelly habit that I believe puts a lot of people off ( this thread proves that) so if a client sees them smoking it may effect the way they view our business or if they get into a car that stinks like smoke it's not something that represents our company image

    The OP was about doing so in your uniform. Not the impact on bystanders.

    And being worried about this minuscule amount of secondhand smoking is a huge over kill.

    Fair enough if Coles provides their employees with a smoking rest area away from customers sights

    On next time I am sitting a hospital room with my child after a massive asthma attack because some drongo blow smoke in her face I will remember it's overkill to worry about it.

    Even staying home. All the cheap furniture (IKEA anyone?!) is the worst in terms of chemical emissions.

    I agree, people gets easily hysterical. And I purposely chose to compare smoking to eating fat foods as we are one of the fattest country in the world so we can hardly go all arm up in the air about smoking being so unhealthy.
    And don't get me started on our carbon emissions....!!

    Our local hospital is really spread over a huge area. It is illegal to smoke anywhere including the car parks.
    The list of places you can't smoke is actually quite long.
    Yes but this was at the shops. The OP was commenting on the persons choice as they were wearing a uniform.

    That in itself is not illegal.

    Yes she also said she was just outside the door. So I was commenting on that part.
    I personally don't care that she was in uniform as I don't own that company. I don't think it's a great look.

    It stinks and it's a gross habit. But until it's altogether banned (which I'm actually for, bc smokers pay a fortune in tax to the govt but have no rights left) and she was the correct distance away on her break, she had a right to be there. In the year I've given up I think *honestly* I've walked through 2 smoke clouds for 5 secs.

    If someone is blowing smoke in a child's face then that is completely out of order. But there is a big gap between that and an employee on their break having a fag metres away that you get a wiff of. When I've been to the big cities the smell and fumes never fails to shock me. Millions and millions of people live their lives in that. Every day. Yet people become so furious over a wiff of smoke? I think context is important here. If it was a parent sitting in their car smoking with kids in there with the windows up I'd be right there with you all in outrage.

    Yeah but Coles sell and profit from cigarettes so Coles could scarcely admonish a worker for being seen with something they sell, Unless she was not in a designated area.

    That said, I am not a fan of smoking.

    So we shouldn't worry about secondhand smoking being an issue because there's so many other things causing more harm...?
