A Permit To Work is a formal written system essential for controlling hazardous work. The permit is devised by the company issuing it to meet that companies specific needs. Proper planning and consideration is given to the risks of the work to be done i.e. Limitations, hazard identification, precautions to be taken, Personal Protective Equipment, authorisation etc.
Permit To Work (PTW) forms are issued for different activities, i.e. Entry into Confined Spaces, Working at Height, Hot Works etc. We can introduce clients own work permit form and base the course on that particular permit to work requirements so we won’t waste your valuable training resources on Permits to work that have no relevance to your business.
The issuing of a permit to work should be strictly controlled and should only be issued by competent authorised personnel, the permit must meet the legal organisational requirements. This training course will guide you through the relevant health and safety regulations and provide a practical experience of completing a permit to work form.
