    Christopher Bruton, Published on 19/12/2016

    » Recent legislation affecting a number of Thailand’s major export markets has obliged authorities to pay greater attention to issues that ought to have been addressed and resolved more than a century ago: namely the persistence of what is euphemistically referred to as "forced labour", or more bluntly "slavery" within the Thailand manufacturing and service industry supply chain.

    Forewarned is forearmed: staff safety training

    Christopher Bruton, Published on 31/10/2016

    » In our series on security, safety and risk mitigation, we have highlighted various risk situations along with preventive measures. But despite every precaution, risks can always arise.

But let’s assume that you are not at risk from rocket attacks from a distance, or a bomb dropped off from an unmanned drone. Under normal circumstances, an organisation can at least take reasonable steps to assure security for staffers and welcome visitors, as well as protecting staffers from visitors who turn out to be unwelcome guests. We asked Chuck Krueger of Ackerman Group for his suggestions, and the following are some of the salient points from his experienced advice.
