Statistics show that a greater percentage of production employees smoke than those in other departments. Production staff work with machines, on production lines, and the team is often under pressure to attain productivity targets. If one of the employees in the production area wants to smoke, it is advisable to create the smoking room as close as possible to the workplace. That saves time. Moreover, consideration must be given to the non-smokers. They must not be subjected to the tobacco odour or tobacco smoke from the smoking room, so it must be well sealed and have adequate smoke extraction.
