Thailand's Ministry of Labor issued the Ministerial Regulation Prescribing Standards for the Management and Operation of Safety, Occupational Health and Working Environment Regarding Confined Spaces.
Under the prescribed standard, “confined space” is defined as a place where access is limited and not designed for a location of continuous work on a regular basis. These spaces include, for example, tunnels, caves, wells, vaults, oil tanks, fermentation tanks, silos, pipes and other things similar. Requirements generally relate to informative reports prepared by employers that must be posted clearly and visibly, prohibitions on children working in these spaces, and those individuals known to have certain diseases from working in these unsafe or confined areas.
