Instructions or procedures 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 of the work are safe. A responsible person should assess the work and check safety at each stage. Employees undertaking the job sign the permit to show that they understand the risks involved and what precautions are necessary.
