An International Labour Organization (ILO) project was conducted in July and August 1995 in Thailand to assist with the development of an information system on occupational accidents and diseases for the Workmen's Compensation Fund (WCF).
The WCF provides cash benefits and medical care to insured workers who suffer employment injuries.
The project included literature research based on the facilities of the ILO in Bangkok, and those of the Thai government, and a thorough review of the ILO Code of Practice (the Code) on recording and notification of occupational accidents and diseases, and of other international recommendations on statistics of occupational accidents and diseases.
A comparative study of various notification systems of occupational accidents and diseases in Australia, Canada, the Philippines, Sweden, Thailand, and the United States was conducted.
The project also included fact-finding sessions among various information suppliers and users in Thailand.
The Thai notification form for collecting data for the database was redesigned and pretested.
Results of the project indicated that the Code is appropriate for the recording and notification of occupational accidents and diseases in Thailand.
In addition, a number of information requirements, which were included in the notification systems in the countries studied but not listed in the Code, were found to be useful for the database. (...)
