SMART WORK IS SAFE WORK: Paper Permits Are Slowing Down Your Shift

Typically, frontline operations rely on a combination of paper forms and informal knowledge transfer from other team members to navigate and validate the permit-to-work process. This leads to a disconnect between critical safety systems in the field: work permits, risk assessments and isolation management.

Making a change to one specific process on your site—the permit-to-work process—can transform your operations with a single investment. Each time a shift starts, operators wait to be issued their work permits. Many factors might delay these permits: ongoing isolation work, missing gas measurements, or simple administrative tasks.

Without an integrated, digital permit-to-work system, the status of these work dependencies and even simple data-filling creates a bottleneck in the permit office. e-Permit to Work results in significant benefits from even the most incremental improvements.

Moving to an electronic Permit-to-Work system introduces a lasting process to your frontline operations that integrates these processes into a single system. 

The result? More Hands-on Tool Time (HoTT) and fewer incidents in the field!

Take a look at our new insight brief The Ultimate Guide to e-Permit to Work: The Top 3 Benefits of Moving Away from Paper.

In it, you will learn how an integrated e-PTW system:

  1. Decreases Waiting Times
  2. Reduces Incidents
  3. Standardizes the PTW Process

For unprecedented safety and efficiency gains in the field.
