Permit to Work (PTW) is a systematic process used to authorize controlled work in nonstandard, potentially hazardous conditions. The process includes permit to work, risk management, hazard identification, isolation management, and establishment of safety protocol.
GOARC’s Safety 4.0 Permit to Work software solution brings clarity to the work floor by combining permit and risk assessment into one system, with an approval workflow that aligns with internal business policies. Based on dynamic forms and adaptive to changing conditions that may vary between sites, the solution supports the entire Permit to Work process including sites, tasks and changing conditions. With all PTW applications in one place, overlapping permits and safety hazards are automatically identified, enabling dynamic work reallocation to keep the crew safe and productive. Everyone, from field worker to CFO, can see the full list of activities, applications, and safety hazards on the same map.
Safety cases are no longer static documents but rather integrated into an operational safety environment that allows for real-time barrier analysis and cumulative risk assessment. GOARC’s Permit to Work software seamlessly integrates the cumulative risk assessment with the permit to optimally decrease the risk level . Data is available 24/7 and is constantly refreshed, enabling smart and rapid decisions based on current status. Data and details made available by the GOARC Permit to Work module include photographs and videos of the field, timestamp, location stamp, diagrams, charts, clips, storage and retrieval information, and more.
