On Tuesday, representatives from the Nong Bua Lamphu Social Security Office paid a visit to Worawut Pannon’s family. Worawut Pannon, a 54-year-old electrician, lost his life in an accident on Sunday at the construction site of the elevated roadway over Rama II Road.
Worawut was covered under the Social Security Act, thus officials granted his wife, a resident of Nong Bua Lamphu’s Na Klang area, compensation for the deceased.
The family will receive 50,000 baht for burial costs, 1.092 million baht, or 70% of ten years’ worth of income, and a pension payment of 71,669.27 baht in the event of a work-related death. 1,213,669.27 Baht is the total compensation paid by the Social Security Fund.
The concrete slab in front of Index Living Mall in Bangkok’s Bang Khun Thian district collapsed onto the road after a sling broke, killing one worker, wounding another, and damaging four oncoming cars, according to a report released on Sunday by the Expressway Authority of Thailand (EXAT).
EXAT halted building for a week while requesting an investigation on what caused the catastrophe. It was also stated that the project’s contractor, CBT Consortium, would be liable for paying compensation to the owners of the wrecked cars as well as any deceased or injured workers.
The four owners of the four automobiles involved in the incident, according to Tha Kham Police Station, have gotten in touch with their insurance companies to request reimbursement from CBT Consortium.
