Two Workers Inhale Gas, Hospitalised; Panel to Submit Environmental Plan Next Week

Bangkok, the 12th of December 2009 [TNA]: Two construction workers were sent to hospital for treatment early Saturday after accidentally inhaling gas leaking from a factory which was recently shut down in the Map Ta Phut Industrial Estate in the eastern province of Rayong for not following environmental regulations, officials at the Industrial Estate Authority of Thailand said.

The accident occurred at about 9.30am when construction workers reported the gas leak incident to the authorities. All the workers were later ordered to leave the area where the gas was leaked from the factory which was closed recently, they said.

Officials said two workers experienced chest pains and were taken to hospital for treatment.

Several chemical leak incidents have taken place in Map Ta Phut Industrial Estate in recent weeks, especially after the Administrative Court temporarily suspended 76 industrial projects in September.

So far only 11 of the total 76 projects were allowed to continue their operations while 65 remain closed until a full court hearing takes place and resolves the matter.

A four-party panel chaired by former prime minister Anand Panyarachun ppointed last month to resolve problems in the area is expected to advise the government late next week on how to assist the 65 suspended projects and speedily set up an independent body to further discuss differences.

Tasked with accelerating the government’s overall response and balanced assessment as an independent body under Article 67 of the Constitution, the committee will be established to ensure that each project conducts an environmental impact assessment (EIA) and a health impact assessment (HIA).

Mr Anand told journalists Friday night that the panel will submit a plan to the government next week.

He said the EIA could be made after a revision of Natural Resources and Environment Ministry regulations which may cover more than 19 industrial types as it is now.

A similar revision will be applied on the HIA, said Mr Anand.

Realising that issuing a new law could consume muchand may hamper new industrial investment projects, Mr Anand said his panel may consult with the Council of State on how to break the deadlock and whether interim regulations should be introduced during the absence of an independent body. (TNA)
