Why use Focul Permit to Work?
FoCul Permit to Work (PTW) provides a formal documented system to control potentially hazardous activities, which is an essential part of safe systems of work for many maintenance activities. There are significant advantages of using our e-PTW system over traditional paper based systems, these include greater management control and increased visibility.
What will the Permit to Work module bring to your business?
Identification of hazards and control measures
Configure hazards, control measures and PPE appropriate to your business as well as well as being able to identify additional criteria on individual permits
Control of work
Manage who is authorised to accept permits, Ensure re-validation of permits to extend expiry date / time. Lock permits electronically so details can not be changed once the permit is live. Maintain a repository indefinitely of all permits with auditable history
Control of isolations
Electrical and mechanical isolations forms are interlocked so that the PTW cannot be made live until isolations are in place. De-isolations can not be carried out until work is complete and before the PTW is closed. Isolations associated with a permit can be printed as a list to assist the person who is making the isolations
Create Supporting Permits
Use our hot work and confined space entry templates or adapt these to meet your requirements. Additional authorisation is required to issue supporting permits and these documents are interlocked to the main permit
An electronic permit system is great for transparency and remote access but sometimes there is a need to be able to display a paper copy at the workplace or obtain physical signatures in addition to electronic authorisation. The print outs are customisable to your business
Store additional documents and maintain a permit library
Additional documents such as method statements, safety plans, MSDS can be stored against each permit. Permits can be added to a library so that they can be retrieved for similar tasks in future, but must be revalidated before re-use
