ILO Technical Cooperation on Labour Inspection in Thailand

Labour inspection is globally recognized as a key tool in labour market governance, and ILO labourinspection conventions1 are considered priority ‘governance conventions’, with the ILO Governing Body having launched a campaign for their universal ratification. Labour inspection is a public function organized by the national labour administration body that is responsible for the supervision and enforcement of relevant labour legislation and policies in workplaces. The labour inspectorate is the central body established by national legislation to secure the enforcement of the legal provisions relating to the conditions of work and the protection of workers, including safety and health conditions.
