Permit to Work Training

If you have workers who carry out particularly high risk activities such as working in a confined space or on high-voltage equipment, utilising a permit to work (PTW) system will mean this work can only be carried out by the persons specified in the permit, and only once the required safety checks and necessary precautions have been put in place. Whilst all workplace activities should be risk assessed and steps taken to keep workers safe, the permit to work system provides an additional layer of protection for activities where the chances of severe injury or death is higher than a typical workplace task.

A permit to work procedure will only be effective if it is understood by those who are affected by it and if it is followed exactly. In order for this to be the case, it is vital that these workers receive permit to work training so that they understand why it is so important to adhere to the procedure, and how to work to its particular contents. The permit can be detailed and contain a number of different aspects of the procedure, including things such as what equipment is involved, who is authorised to carry out the work and the length of time that the permit is valid for.
