Government-Sponsored Work Safety Loan for Employers
Workplace safety in Thailand is regulated mainly by the Occupational Safety, Health and Environment Act B.E. 2554 (2011) (the Act), which came into effect in 2011. The Act imposes a series of general requirements for all employers to follow, including obligations to arrange safety training for all employees and to ensure that personal safety equipment are worn by employees before starting work. Businesses in certain industries, such as construction mining, transportation and electricity, are further regulated by specific Ministerial Regulations with additional obligations on employers e.g. appointment of safety officers, establishment of a safety committee, submission of safety officers report and provision of specialized training for employees who will be conducting such works.
