What is The Amazing Thailand Safety and Health Administration (SHA) project is the result of a SHA cooperation between the Ministry of Tourism and Sports, the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT), ? the Ministry of Public Health, the Department of Disease Control, the Department of Health and the Department of Health Service Support, as well as government and private sectors involved in the tourism industry. The project aims to make tourism an active participant in the disease prevention measures and ensure that Both Thai and foreign tourists have a positive experience, that they are happy and confident in the sanitation and safety standards of Thailandโ€s tourism related products and services and ultimately hopes to reduce the spread of COVID-19 by combining public health safety measures with high standards of service. Various boards, federations, and associations in the tourism industry are responsible for inspecting the SHA checklist and certifying the result of improving the workplace according to SHA standards. The workplace is divided into 10 business types: 1. restaurants / diners, 2. hotels, accommodation and meeting places, 3. recreational activities and tourist attractions, 4. transportation, 5. travel agencies, 6. health and beauty, 7. department stores and shopping centres , 8. sport for tourism, 9. activities , meetings , theaters and entertainment venues, 10. souvenir shops and other retail outlets. The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) awards SHA certificates and records the names of entrepreneurs who have received the certificate in a database. However, The TAT can also revoke the SHA certificate if business owners fail to maintain the establishmentโ€s standards or fail to comply with SHA standards. SHA also provides sanitation and safety standards for tourists. During the re-opening period of establishments and services, tourists and service recipients are asked to provide any suggestions (Post Audit) via the online system created by TAT which will be used for further improvement. Establishments will be randomly inspected by the committee.
