Frequently Asked Questions

How long does a permit to work last?
This depends on the specific organisation and their protocols but typically you might see a permit only valid for one day through to examples that span an entire week for ongoing work. Commonly a permit is tied to a specific job activity and so when that specific activity is complete and a new job activity starts, the permit ends and a new permit to work process starts (is the new job activity a high risk task? Does it require multiple permit to work / authorisation to work?)

Is a permit to work needed for a low risk task?
Commonly a Permit to Work form is required for high risks tasks. Low risk tasks don't commonly require a permit to work but some organisations may implement different procedures here for some tasks.

How do you deal with multiple permit to work requests for the one job activity?
This is where having a permit to work system helps manage this scenario more effectively. It helps establish a way to classify different work activities by risk level and systematically determine what permit to work forms are required for different work activities, triggering the approval workflows and authorisation to work process.

How many approvers can you have for a permit to work?
This comes down to the preferences of an organisation, one contact might be a specific approver just for one type of permit to work form (i.e. electrical) versus other contacts who are listed as responsible officers / responsible persons for a whole range of permit forms. You might even setup an escalation sequence where multiple contacts are required to go through an approval process (i.e. a building engineer approval).
