Permit to Work Training
A permit to work (PTW) system ensures that formal validation and authority is given when hazardous work is to be undertaken. It ensures that all components of a safe system of work are established before high risk work commences, thereby controlling and reducing risk to individuals and the organisation.

This training course can be tailored to include details of your company-specific permit to work system. In this case, our health and safety consultants will require details of your system and sample forms for inclusion prior to the course.
Each delegate will be issued with a course workbook to assist them both during and after the course. This workbook will contain information, technical knowledge, graphics and forms to assist those working with permit to work systems.
Our health and safety consultants are qualified and experienced health and safety professionals with an appropriate background in the health and safety industry and many years of experience in delivering engaging courses in health and safety. All consultants hold professional membership of the chartered Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH).
The course will be delivered over one day.
Delegates will be awarded a certificate of attendance upon successful completion of the course.
