Not quite in the Myles Peterson league but the Department of Health and Ageing has come up with another great bit of bureaucracy.
Central Office staff are reminded that they are not permitted to smoke within 15 metres of departmental premises at any time. This includes the Mocca café on the ground floor of Scarborough House. Please note the café’s identified smoking area does not apply to staff of the department as it is within the 15 metre zone.
I’m not, nor have ever been, a smoker, but it seems odd that a a non-Health employee can smoke in the designated area, but a Health employeee cannot. As a manager, i guess I’m glad none of my staff are smokers as I see a minefield in trying to enforce this directive.
