Regulations and safety practices have evolved over time to improve the safety standards inside an organization based on observations made from real safety incidents. This has led to regulatory standards mandating the need for organizations to issue permits for hazardous tasks.
Beyond the confines of regulatory compliance, creating a safe work environment helps employees feel heard, included, and, most importantly, safe. However, manually managing the permit to work (PTW) process can be a drain on time and resources, is cumbersome, and involves repetitive work that can be prone to errors.
Permits are given to a specific person for a specific period. Tracking the validity can also add to the complexity of managing the permits. This is where a next-generation permit to work system comes into play. A world-class system helps to manage permit-to-work requirements by integrating people, processes, and systems, especially in high-risk sectors.
