Prioritizing Safety is Key for Sustainable Industry in Thailand
Since Thailand became part of the modern industrial supply chain, the structure of the plant facilities and the design of the production lines has continuously evolved. This is the same as the laws that regulate work safety and management. The more modern technologies have been adopted, the safer the working condition in the manufacturing sector, and the increased conscience about industrial impact on the community and the environment.
Over Three Decades of Promoting Work Safety
“The Safety and Health at Work Promotion Association (Thailand) Under Patronage was established to promote safety and occupational health in environment. Our roles include providing legal advice, consultant on work safety standards and the measurement of impact on the environment . Over 34 years, SHAWPAT has worked with both public and private agencies, and have a network of academic experts in various fields of safety. Hence, we have been trusted by various business establishments to trained over 100,000 personnel on the laws and regulations regarding safety each year.
