Significant Safety Concerns
(This post was originally posted on March 30, 2015 with updates on June 18, 2015 to highlight the red flag issued by the ICAO).
The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), a United Nation agency, recently completed an audit of the Thai aviation sector and noted a number of deficiencies. Although the final report has not been made public, the agency announced that it has “significant safety concerns”. If you have been involved in an accident at work due to a lack of safety then you are entitled to get as many lawyers as you want to help your case. If you receive a personal injury from something like a construction working site, it doesn’t matter if you work there or not, you can still receive compensation for your injury. When working on a construction site you need to be aware of health and safety as it might cost you your life if you aren’t careful. To ensure that you are up to date with health and safety regulations, your employer might ask you to take a course similar to wh&s more skills to help you on the job.
