Can I smoke while working in the forest?

No. The Forest Protection Regulation and the SOPFEU’s Minimum standards governing forest management and supply activities state that:

• It is forbidden to smoke or to use an open flame within 15 m of a fuel storage or handling point.
• No person may smoke in or near a forest from 1 April to 15 November while working or travelling, except in a building or a closed vehicle.
