Mr. Suthep said that the government under the leadership of the Prime Minister and Minister of Defense General Prayuth Chan-ocha, and Deputy Prime Minister General Prawit Wongsuwan, who oversees the Ministry of Labour, gives importance to strengthening Thai society as a preventive culture for occupational safety and health, and sustainable well-being. Their efforts are also focused on driving the vision of Thailand 4.0 to develop into the “Workforce 4.0” by creating a learning system to develop the quality of workers and awareness, leading to an increase in important knowledge for effective work and building a sustainable safety culture. Today, the Labour Minister, Mr. Suchart Chomklin, assigned Mr. Suthep to chair the opening speech of the seminar on occupational safety and health in the Eastern region in Chonburi Province for 2022. The event aligns with the concept of creating three values of safety at work, which Prime Minister General Prayuth Chan-ocha said at the opening ceremony of the 34th National Occupational Safety and Health Fair, which is awareness, correct discipline, generosity, and care. He encouraged all relevant sectors to apply this value to help workers’ good health and safety.
The event aims to drive employees, employers, and related parties from the public and private sectors to realize the importance of occupational safety, health, and the working environment. It aims to reduce the severity and loss arising from insecurity at work, especially working conditions in the new normal. It aims to build a preventative Thai cultural network toward occupational safety, health, and sustainable well-being.
