Being built on, our solution is flexible, scalable, and customizable to suit your organization’s needs. Our search feature is “global by design,” making it easy for health and safety leaders to find anything related to specific injuries, incidents, or illnesses from the past and using this to plan work permits, safety management and risk mitigation strategies based on data.

    • Permits are often necessary in the pharmaceutical sector due to working with corrosive materials, toxic chemicals, and some synthetic drugs. General permits for bio-containment usage and material transfers protecting respiratory and digestive tracts and skin and eyes due to toxicity exposure are applicable to organic solvents and other chemicals in life sciences. Hot work such as welding and brazing of materials in the medical device industry can require hot work permits along with energized areas that can require special permits.

    • Each location and type of work might require a different approval process based on specific organizational needs. Take advantage of a completely configurable workflow based on location and type of permit. Utilize the increased visibility to permit approval, review, and management process for improved auditing, tracking of permits and risk exposure across multiple departments and sites.

      Incorporate Multiple Permit Status Options: Streamline your process from initiation through to permit closure by having the system automatically deactivate permits based on work completion while manually supporting extensions and exceptions.

    • Utilize an easy to navigate, visual and intuitive experience of work locations and instructions on where and how to perform each step of your PTW process to get to the end objective. Reduce errors and injuries. Achieve your PTW goals quicker by having workers feel safe and assured that the permits are on mobile devices and completely filled-out by their employer. Visually associate hazardous location/zone to permits with complete details and relevant checklists. Optionally, use mobile devices to visualize the work effort and streamline the approval process.

    • Reducing incidents and improving the overall safety culture is important for all. Using the Permit to Work Solution drives greater productivity of employees and equipment utilization while reducing costs due to accidents. The closed loop improvement process improves safety and ensures compliance by reducing the number of permit-related incidents. So, accelerate your safety efficiency goals and targets and reduce costs by eliminating redundant, repetitive manual paper-based work.

    • Use ComplianceQuest Permit to Work Solution to identify risks and evaluate the entire situation from the start, identifying and isolating risks and including necessary safety information. Ensure worker safety using the PTW solution with a checklist on instructions, certifications, locations, and protective wear. Assist managers in planning and coordinating multiple aspects of a given project to avoid confusion and conflict between different crews and avoid overlaps. Streamline the inspection and isolation process using checklists to make sure the job is correctly done.

    • Whether in life sciences, construction, or general manufacturing, permits are required for improved safety of employees and contractors performing chemical exposures, hot works, excavations, confined space work and so on. Prevent incidents through effective management of hazards to include safe systems of work and robust permit to work processes. Ensure that tasks are carried out in accordance with the instructions, conditions, and certifications needed as specified in the permit.

    • With ComplianceQuest’s Permit to Work Solution you have a single data source for all work permit data in a central, easily accessible location and available for everyone across your entire QHSE functions for quality in employee safety, products, assets, and processes. Increase productivity by reducing time spent on manual, disparate, or outdated systems. Create all types of work permits with pre-designed templates or generate your own configurable templates.
