Hello, I am looking for someone to write an article on Smoke Free Work Place and Public Place. It needs to be at least 2250 words. Everyone has a right. This includes the right to eat whatever food one wants to eat in peace. However, the exercise of such rights may infringe on the rights of other persons. To resolve this issue, the courts of law will interpret the laws. . For example, a man wants to kiss a beautiful woman watching the Big Ben clock. The woman refuses to be kissed. There is now a conflict of rights here. Further, the employees and the customers of the public place or workplace must always be protected.
House of Lords Committee on the Constitutional Reform Bill, written evidence from the Secretary of State for Constitutional Affairs and Lord Chancellor 14(2004) stated that the rule of law is the focus of democracy in the UK as well as the shared values of EU member states. For, the rule of law creates an atmosphere of transparency, fairness, and predictability in the performance of business and contracts as well as personal safety, protection of the individual and property. The Judiciary safeguards the rights of individuals who are protected3. The EU, where the UK is a member state, is a supranational organization where treaties are considered the law. In fact, the decisions of the European Court of Justice will prevail if it is in conflict with the decisions handed down by the member states’ courts of justice4.
For, the GREEN PAPER issued by the EU Commission entitled Towards a Europe free from Tobacco Smoke: Policy Options at EU Level states the legal framework on Environmental Tobacco Smoke exposure and its relation to health considerations5.
The reports declare that passive smoking(inhaling the smoke exhaled by smokers) can cause respiratory diseases including lung cancer6. Also, second-hand smoke (SHS) is a major source of exacerbation for people who have asthma, a chronic obstructive pulmonary disease that includes lung cancer, allergies and other related diseases which makes them live a secluded life7.
In addition, SHS is dangerous to young children and infants as well as pregnant women.
