IV. Violation:

The employer can be penalised by imprisonment up to 1 year and/or fine up to THB 400,000

V. Summary:

Employers in the relevant industries must appoint and establish safety officers, safety department, and OSH committee as required by law. The employer must also have a regulation and guidance on work safety. Besides these duties, the OSH Act also sets out the criteria for the other occupational safety (e.g. light, sound, chemical, fire, electricity, crane, radiator, confined space, etc.) for the employers who operate in relevant areas. Additionally, there are safety consultant firms who can provide detail/technical consultations and practical solutions for the employers who are required to comply with safety laws.
