Why is a Permit to Work Important?

Instructions or procedures such as RAMS or SSOW are adequate for most work activities, but some require extra care.  A ‘permit to work’ is a more formal system stating exactly what work is to be done and when, and which parts are safe.  A responsible person should assess the work and check safety at each stage. The people doing the job sign the permit to show that they understand the risks and precautions necessary.
