Permit to Work
Efficient production under circumstances that are optimally safe for people, plant and environment requires continuous focus from all involved. The Permit to Work process plays a key role in creating these safe conditions for the people that work in plants on a daily basis.
The basic principle of the Permit to Work best practice is risk management. All works are classified by the degree of risk involved. This defines how roles and responsibilities are organized and ensures the four eyes principle is always applied.
Plants working with the best practice experience better risk assessments, more planned work, reduced contractor waiting time, and higher deployment of the facility. Better preparation and effective communication reduces losses caused by unclear and unsafe situations, and provides more predictable production planning. The best practice provides a benchmark that allows you to easily identify areas for improvement and quickly and effectively raise quality, compliance and performance.
