Permit to Work Training


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.

The permit to work is also a means of communication and control between site managers, supervisors, contractors and those carrying out the hazardous work.
