Werkloze rookplek

Ook Frankrijk lijkt zich op te maken om de druk op de rokers te vergroten zodat ze hun miserabele gewoonte opgeven. De aangewezen weg is hier natuurlijk weer de aloude rookloze werkplek. Hoe kan men immers beter de roker gedwongen laten afkicken dan door zoveel mogelijk plekken te definiëren waar niet gerookt mag worden?


En natuurlijk is het weer het aloude smoesje: meeroken is slecht…


The French government plans to propose a wide-ranging clean indoor air law that would see smoking banned in all workplaces.

The bill, which has the initial backing of about 60 National Assembly members, will be submitted this autumn.

Yves Bur, a government official, said: “We need to move forward in our fight against the public scourge that tobacco is.”

Clean indoor air is currently required only in some public places in France, including hospitals, train stations and airports.

A 1991 law ordered the creation of smoke-free areas in public places. Bur added: “We need clear smoking legislation that leaves no room for confusion.

“The clearest, simplest thing would be to totally eliminate workplace smoking.”

About 20 million French people smoke – more than one-third of the population – as do 50 per cent of youths aged 15 to 24, the highest rate in the European Union.

  • I've alllllllways said that asking smokers "do you want to quit?" and reporting the results of that question, as is, is horribly misleading. It's a TWO part question. After asking if one wants to quit it must be followed up with "Why?" Ask why and the majority of the answers will be "because I'm supposed to" (victims of guilt and propaganda), not "because I want to."
