Permit to Work Issue Training

It is the responsibility of every organisation to keep their employees and contractors safe and one way of achieving that is by implementing a Permit to Work (PTW) system when undertaking high-risk activities.

Conducted by our experienced workplace safety consultants, this Permit to Work (PTW) course will train participants in understanding their responsibilities for issuing work permits, as part of a formally documented system.

Our training emphasises the responsibility of managers and supervisors to ensure certain parameters are met prior to issue and the importance of continuous monitoring and updating of the permits as work progresses.

This course suits any person responsible for the oversight or management of Permit to Work (PTW) systems.
