Hoping to prevent drug abuse and accidents in the workplace, the Chonburi Department of Labor Protection and Welfare has launched a “white factory” program and is encouraging Pattaya businesses to sign up.
The department, responsible for raising labor standards to international levels, wants manufacturing and service-industry companies to work to eliminate drug addiction among employees and offer jobs to rehabilitated drug addicts.
In addition, the DLPW is urging businesses to better mind safety and prevent accidents by complying with existing standards.
Employees from factories that passed the “white factory” program criteria sign in to attend the ceremony.
Department employee Suwanna Khantivisit said 91 companies joined the white-factory program last year with 88 of those receiving certification in January from the Labor Department. She emphasized that non-factories can join the young program and encouraged Pattaya business owners to sign up.
