According to the annual workplace technology reports, construction, manufacturing, and transportation and storage remain the top 3 industries with the most workplace injuries. Such industrial fields are most likely to be expanded on multiple sites with large surfaces, which actually makes permits to work a necessary element in the process of risk and fatality prevention.
Nowadays, specialists are working on e-Permit to Work (e-PTW) as a solution to prevent workplace risks and optimise the equipment certification process as an alternative to the long paperwork process of the traditional Permit to Work.
Many companies still use paper and spreadsheet-based systems for their PTW. This leads to three main complications:
The manual process takes a long time.
There are increased risks (loss of paper, damage, and traceability).
Verification is often difficult.
So what are the most significant challenges imposed by the traditional PTW? How could they be optimised by an e-PTW? And which goals can the e-PTW contribute to achieving among those set in the industry? This guide should help you undertake the digitization of your Permit to Work System.
