This study investigates the great role played by the state’s public sectors and the state’s private sectors in providing an obligation on the administrations and employers to provide a sound work environment for the workforce in all sectors in purpose of protection from passive smoking that affects workers within. Taking control of matters, implementing the anti-smoking law and introducing the general ban on categories of juveniles and children are important. The law must be imposed on the places specified by the legislator including closed and covered places, public transportation and gas stations, with reliance on educational and health institutions to take the lead in implementing this anti-smoking law, taking into account the privacy of providing places designated for smoking in places where smoking is prohibited. Thus the commitment of the administrations and work owners is an obligation to achieve the result of banning smoking, and considering passive smoking as one of the occupational diseases that cause cancers, and then it deserves compensation from the Social Security Department.
