    Do you allow you’re guys or Subs to smoke on the job site?

    Why or Why Not?

    Only if we are at the rough in stage. Anytime after
    That go to ur truck or outside. Looks more
    Professional.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 over

    I hear you Boyd. But lots of customers don’t like that

    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.

    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.

    I get thousands of people who visit my place every year and it drives me crazy when they flick their butts in my yard . 🙁

    That’s a pretty rude thing for people to do John. I guess you’ll have to start a no smoking policy or something.

    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.

    @ 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 front 🙂
