    Iron work?? Yep, not a good idea. Was a time when safety meetings amounted to a couple of beers, but those days are long gone.
    I was building ski lifts 40 yrs ago, and we were burning buds at lunch, one of the knuckle heads went a drove a 20 ton P&H down the path with the boom in the air, ran into a 14KV line, blew transformer and luckily did not burn the tires off and smoke him. That took care of smoking the blunts while at work. These days, I wait until I am at home, or somewhere I am going to be for a few hours before I tilt one.

    DSM for a seed company and farmer.

    Meeting customers/prospects for lunch or hosting field days, or appreciation dinners -Yes

    Hanging out with customers at there shops during the summer-yes

    Sitting down to finalize orders, go over data or settle up on accounts-No

    Don’t drink an farm unless I’m not leaving the shop or know I won’t have to move any equipment on the road.

    I guess it depends on what you do for work. If you are a brewmaster, it may be required.
    In my job it would have been frowned on. Uniformed LEO. :l

    You need at least that much to watch Arkansas football.

    Nobody is ever drinking on the job site while actually operating equipment. But if we get done early and it’s hot out and we’re spending the rest of the day in the shop doing maintenance work or something it’s not uncommon to break some beers out.

    How bout them Hawgs, breaking an 0-20 SEC streak. All it took was them shipping Chad Morris to Auburn.

    In my real job retired 13 years, sales, no you best not have alcohol on your breath. Get caught DWI, loss of job. But in the old days, taking customers to lunch was encouraged, and that included alcohol. One customer cleared his schedule for the rest of the day when I came and we ate, drank, and played backgammon all afternoon. He was a bad influence on me. My part time job for 9 years which I quit last year was delivering catered food in their vans and no drinking at all. Get caught, loss of job.
