Yes why non-smoking in an outdoors job? Understand if no smoking in the truck etc., but this seems unreasonable. What else is not allowed?

 

we don't employ people who smoke or have had a drug problem or people that are technically over weight

Not sure if that's legal on this side of the pond. Drugs, fair enough. Smoking or weight? Questionable. I smoke and and fitter than many non smokers. I also know the odd climber who's BMI puts them as overweight, and they're quicker than me. I'm tiny.

 

How do you guage "technically overweight" anyhow? BMI? In that case England's Rugby team are all obese!

It's America Joe.

Overweight means more than 40 stone.

I suppose it means having to buy a bigger bucket truck...

simple

overweight and smoking is judged by how long it takes with running to and from the chipper

until they need a fag or feel faint and need to eat again

Why non-smoking?

 

Its a job advert, you either meet the criteria or you don't. Don't ask the employer to justify their criteria.
