Ireland Airport and Railway



Ireland: Since March 2004 the Irish Government has implemented a ban on smoking in the workplace
in Ireland. This means that with effect from that smoking is forbidden in enclosed places of work in
Ireland. This includes office blocks, various buildings, public houses/bars, restaurants and company
vehicles (cars and vans). The Government has further strengthened the law on smoking by limiting the
sale of cigarettes in Ireland.

Less than one-fourth the Irish population smoke. The purpose of this ban is to offer protection to
employees and the public who are exposed to the harmful and toxic effects of tobacco smoke in the
workplace. Smoking has been identified as a major cause of heart disease and a significant contributor
to lung cancer in Ireland.

Any person found guilty of breaching the ban on smoking in the workplace may be subject to a fine of
up to 3,000 Euros. The owner, manager or person in command of the workplace is legally responsible
for ensuring that the ban on smoking in the workplaceis complied with.

アイルランド空港、鉄道、レストランとバー

アイルランドを旅して肌で感じたことは国が受動喫煙の有害性を広報し、規制を強化していることである。
空港施設内、鉄道車内などの公共性の高い機関はもとより、レストラン、バーでは「喫煙しないこと」が
当然のこととして受け入れられている。喫煙規制を明確に表示している飲食店もあれば、全く禁煙表示して
いないレストランもある。むしろ表示していない飲食店の方が多いようだ。すべてが了解された不文律となって
いるのだろう。アイルランド人は非常にきれいずきだ。ホテルやレストランではよく清掃している場面に
遭遇する。都市の道路上にタバコの吸い殻やゴミを見かけない。
