Indonesia is the world’s fourth most populous country, a continent-sized archipelago of 17,000 islands across three time zones..  ...   deforestation as the primary cause of emissions).. Thirteen years after the fall of Suharto, Indonesia is one of the most stable, open democracies in Asia, with a vibrant free press and active civil society, and an economy rapidly approaching investment grade as it grows at around 6% p.. a.. By 2015 Indonesia could be a middle-income country with an average per capita income of $4,000pa, a beacon of democratic stability in Asia.. But poverty remains widespread: over 100 million people live on less than $2 per day.. Economic crisis could still lead to breakdown of civil governance or a return to autocratic structures.. There is an underlying risk of radicalisation which would be exacerbated by economic pressures.. Health and education provision is poor, as is infrastructure (energy, roads, ports etc).. Indonesia continues to suffer from corruption, weak institutions and erratic rule of law.. Maintaining competitiveness and achieving the double-digit growth many see as necessary for real take-off will be a real challenge.. Meanwhile growth depends on exploitation of Indonesia’s huge natural resources, and does not easily balance with the nation’s ambitious goal to reduce carbon emissions by 26% from business as usual by 2020 (or 41% with international assistance).. 1767..

  • Title: Country info
    Descriptive info: Thailand Menu.. Background.. National Profile On Occupational.. Safety And Health Of Thailand.. 1.. Current Situation of Occupational Safety and Health.. 1 Overall Country Characteristics.. Thailand has a population of approximately 65.. 74 million (2007), with an area of 513,115 square kilometers.. Thailand is located in the center of Southeast Asia.. Thailand’s geographical location and favorable climatic conditions have allowed the country to be prosperous, due to extensive agricultural economy.. Since the beginning the 1960s Thailand has embarked on modern economic development when it implemented the first five-year development plan, based on agriculture and manufacturing for export.. In the past 40 years the country’s economy and society have changed dramatically.. However, since 1997 Thailand is enveloped, like most countries in the region in an economic crisis.. As a result, Thailand experiencing difficulties in sustaining the prosperity and has witnessed a negative growth rate of the economy as of 1998.. During the years of rapid economic growth, the contribution of the agricultural section to Gross Domestic Product (GDP) has declined from more than 80 per cent in the 1960s to 10.. 4 per cent in 1996.. About 89 per cent of GDP are based on non-agricultural products whereas manufacturing contributed 32.. 6 per cent, equaling US$ 124,708 millions in 1996.. Per capita income in the same year was US$ 2,022.. Much of the wealth generated by this rapid economic development was accumulated in the central region of Thailand, especially in the provinces around Bangkok where most of the industries are located.. This situation has drawn much of the labour from the agricultural sector in the North and Northeast to the cities in the central region.. Migration from rural to urban areas in the 1960s and 1970s was partly pushed by poverty in rural economy and pulled by the demand for labour in the non-agricultural sector.. Like many other countries in this region rapid economic development was pursued at the cost of the country’s natural resources, especially land and forests, causing many environmental and social problems.. Thailand’s manufacturing sector is supplying textile, garments, footwear, electrical and electronic goods, gems and jewels and dozens of other products for local and world markets.. On the other hand, Thailand’s agricultural sector occupied 20 million hectares of land with rice accounting for 58 per cent.. Three crops, maize, rubber and cassava, in nearly equal proportions, account for 28 per cent of land and the remaining 14 per cent includes vegetables, fruits, soya and cotton.. 2 Total and Economically Active Population.. In 2007, Thailand’s population growth was 1.. 0 per cent per annum.. The labour force was 36.. 94 million; of this 36.. 25 million were employed and 0.. 51 million unemployed.. About 14.. 31 million and 21.. 95 million were employed in agricultural and non agricultural  ...   that those contracted workers would have good tendency of not to be fully protected in the area of occupational safety and health.. In many occasions these contracted are treated as second class employees in many aspects.. In addition, based on the figures mentioned one might notice that a large proportion, almost two thirds, of the labour force, was engaged in agriculture and informal sector, and being outside the scope of the protective provisions of the labour laws, these workers do not have the benefit of statutory support for improvement of their working conditions and protection from occupational injuries and diseases.. 3 Overview of Occupational Safety and Health.. National Occupational Safety and Health Policies and National Agenda.. 1) National Occupational Safety and Health Policies.. The Royal Thai Government recognises that human resources are the important part of the new manufacturing and economical system.. Therefore, the scope for labour development and relevant policy which included the policy on occupational safety and health has been set up for the following objectives: (1) to promote labour protection in both formal and informal sectors; (2) to promote the implementation of occupational safety, health and environment at the enterprise level.. The policy on occupational safety and health in the Tenth National Economic and Social Development Plan (2007-2011) includes the reduction of preventable accident focusing on the workplaces.. and in the Second Master Plan on OSH or SAFEWORK THAILAND (2007-2011) are to reduce occupational accidents and diseases, for instance by the following means: (1) improving legal enforcement and compliance monitoring systems, (2) promoting the implementation of occupational safety and health in the enterprise, (3) formulating Ministerial Regulations on an Occupational Safety and Health Management System, and etc.. 2) National Agenda: “Decent Safety and Health for Workers”.. Government of Thailand has an ultimate policy to secure human and civil society quality of life and asset where workers are in safe and healthy workplace.. To be a knowledgeable society of OSH in order to reduce loss of valuable worker’s life, all sectors goal is empowering Thailand’s population as part of globalization by the year 2016 (B.. E.. 2559).. The seven achievements in reach on purpose of “Decent Safety and Health for Workers” are as the following:.. Workers are in secure of job occupancy under the National OSH Master Plan.. 2.. Workers in any sectors are secure to work in safety standards work environment.. 3.. Workers are induced to cultivate safety and health awareness in order to be sustainable learning civil society.. 4.. Reduce occupational injury and disease rate.. 5..
