Safe work permit, proper isolation & tag out

Safe work permit (SWP) 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 organization.

The (SWP) is also a means of communication and control between manger , supervisor , forman, contractors and those carrying out the hazardous work. Because of this, effective safe work permit training is crucial for working safely when involved in high-risk activities.

The course is aimed at the following personnel:

  • Those responsible for implementing permit to work systems
  • New employees selected by the organization for issuing and signing off permits to work
  • Existing personnel in the organization who issue and sign off permits that require formal training

  • The typical contents of a permit to work
  • The procedure for issuing a permit to work
  • The cessation and termination of a permit
