what happens if the injured person is an Thai ?

1) an minimum of 500,000 baht compensation

2) The company safety records will be scrutinised .

If an foreigner is injured everybody will turn back, how do you expect tourist receive this message from hongkong gentlemen ?

We continue to maintain a perfect safety record since 1989 Following international safety standards.

None of those things will happen if a Thai is injured. It will be 500 Baht and a Wai at most.

A scan cannot detect a concussion but I get your point.

Compensation is appropriate, and should be a fair amount considering the entire loss, assurance of future improvements in safety control measures should be conducted by authorities, or their licence should be revolked 

Meanwhile, I doubt the guy will get much, because he would have signed a wavier before participating.
