SitePlanner offers an integrated online Permit to Work (PTW) system providing you with an auditable, compliant and controlled method for managing activity on across your site.

There are 3 main functions to the SitePlanner Permit to Work system:

The RAMS and Permit Process

Risk Assessment/Method Statement (RAMS)

The RAMS feature allows you to upload, store and have a review/approval process within SitePlanner for all site Risk Assessments and Method Statements (RAMS). Health and Safety Regulations require approved RAMS for specific types of work to be carried out.

Permits

Create, store and have a review/approval process within SitePlanner for all site permits for work that is required on site assets.

Custody

Create a Custody record for one or more assets and assign custody to a selected contractor and a specific package for the site. Users can set a date range for the transfer of control and assign approved permits for selected assets that fall within this custody period.

This feature integrates with SitePlanner’s interactive map once the record is activated. The Custody record will also keep a full audit history of the Custody lifecycle. When works have been completed and custody is no longer required, the record can be withdrawn by closing-out the record.

The Permit to Work system is designed to be an integral solution to ensuring the smooth running of the operational site works.
