Regulations and safety practices have evolved to improve the safety standards inside an organization as a result of real incidents on job sites. Organizations operating in a high-risk environment must understand the requirements of these regulations and the potential repercussions of an unsafe environment. Beyond the confines of regulatory compliance, creating a safe work environment helps employees feel heard, included and most importantly, safe.
By issuing a permit to work in these environments, the employer acknowledges the risk associated with the task and ensures that all necessary precautions have been taken to eliminate the risk. This record, in turn, helps the organization to remain compliant with regulations and keep track of all such tasks performed.
