What are the First Aid Requirements in the Workplace in Thailand?
One of the first questions managers ask when assessing their first aid needs is, 'What are the First Aid Requirements in the Workplace in Thailand?'. To answer this question, let's go directly to the point. In Thailand, employers have a legal duty to arrange for the first aid training of their staff if they become ill or suffer an injury at work.
The following regulations originate from the “The Safety, Health and Workplace Act (Act II 2011)” and the “The Labor Protection Act (B.E 2541, 1998)”. First Aid Regulations in Thailand.
First Aid Requirements in the Workplace. Duties of employers.
Employers have a duty to arrange and ensure that the workplace and the employees have safe and hygienic work conditions and workplace environments; and provide support to the performance of employees to prevent them from suffering an injury to life, body, mind, health, and health.
Employers to appoint a work safety officer

The training curriculum for safety officers shall comprise first aid in an establishment with a period of 3 hours and a demonstration and practical training on first aid with a period of 3 hours (Rule of the Department of Labor Protection and Welfare on the training curriculum for Safety Officers, B.E 2549,2006).
