A permit-to-work system is a formal written system used to control certain types of work that are potentially hazardous. A permit to work is a document that specifies the work to be done and the precautions to be taken. Permits-to-work form an essential part of safe systems of work for many maintenance activities. They allow work to start only after safe procedures have been defined and they provide a clear record that all foreseeable hazards have been considered. This course reviews the essential elements of a permit-to-work system.
