This carpenter where I was working wasn’t
Smoking he was chewing tobbaco . I think that
Is worse them smoking . Then again its my
opinion. I know many people do smoke.April 2, 2013 at 8:55 pm #19528
Ever had a person drink alcohol at
The job site? I have .April 3, 2013 at 6:16 am #19584
Drinking on the jobsite is much worse than smoking, that’s a huge safety factor! I’ve never seen anyone do it but I’m sure there are lots of guys who do.DanApril 3, 2013 at 10:57 am #19619
I had this one guy . He was a hard and great
Worker. Just that a lunch time I got him drinkind beer.
I had to let him go. Although he was great while
working. Glad nothing went wrong. But poor
guy did have a problem.April 3, 2013 at 11:19 am #19638
Definitely no smoking on the job, but chewing only if the customer isn’t around. Only spitting in the bottle, no spitting on the floor. Even spitting in a cup is a bit dangerous, just for the mess when it eventually gets kicked over.April 3, 2013 at 4:11 pm #19733
Most builders I work for absolutely refuses to let anyone smoke on the job. Outside, in their vehicle, fine. In the home, no way. No butts in the driveway or side of the road.
One doesn’t even want a coffee cup or soda laying around. That’s at finishing stage though. It spills and makes a mess. Understandable.May 20, 2013 at 9:18 pm #26591
I can understand not wanting any smokers in a house on the finish work but before that I think it’s ok. Just no butts all overMay 20, 2013 at 9:34 pm #26594
I hear you Boyd. But lots of customers don’t like thatMay 20, 2013 at 9:41 pm #26595
Unfortunately, I do smoke. Not in houses or even in front of customers. And I get pissed if I ever see a cig. butt lying around.
No drinking allowed until after work.Mark E. Los Gatos, CA www.creative-redwood-designs.com

smoking on a job site drives me nuts. Even smoking outside if the house is closed in is a bad idea. 6 months ago when I was doing all the trim work for a new build, there were cigarette butts all over the outside of the house. In my opinion, that would just leave a bad taste in my mouth if I just paid to have a new house built, and I had to pick up butts all over the place.May 21, 2013 at 5:19 am #26604

I get thousands of people who visit my place every year and it drives me crazy when they flick their butts in my yard .www.extremebirdhouse.comMay 21, 2013 at 6:28 am #26611
That’s a pretty rude thing for people to do John. I guess you’ll have to start a no smoking policy or something.DanMay 21, 2013 at 3:42 pm #26675
I have been on commercial jobsites where just about anything was used. I was pretty much the loner on the site. One guy was a pint of hard liquor into it by the time he rolled out at 7am. By noon, he had two bones smoked.May 21, 2013 at 3:54 pm #26679
@ John L… I have to agree with Dan… not only rude but simply uncalled for !! Maybe you could make a birdhouse ash tray to put out frontMay 22, 2013 at 8:47 pm #26806
I would post signs all around the place, “NO SMOKING” I have dogs that live here, they get very sick off the buttsMay 23, 2013 at 6:23 am #26814
There are solutions out there for us smokers.
