Effective Control of Hazards in the Workplace
A permit to work system ensures that formal validation and authority is given when hazardous work is to be undertaken.
It ensures that all components of a safe system of work are established before high risk work commences, thereby controlling and reducing risk to individuals and the organisation.
A permit to work system is a formal written procedure which is designed to give greater control over tasks that involve inherently higher risks. It sets out the precautions required to complete the work safely, based on a risk assessment.
This course outlines the use of the permit system in managing a safe system of work. It examines common permit systems and their applications to different fields of work, as well exploring some of the pitfalls. It will also include examples of permit systems and policies in use across many sectors as well as questions to consider when auditing your current arrangements. This course will also provide the information and the necessary tools that you will need in order to recognise the risks associated with the hazardous jobs, you will learn the procedures to control and minimise risks through work permit system.
