For any activity that is classified as “high risk“, certain safety regulations and controls must be observed, this includes ensuring the right Permits to Work are in place. Usually these permits document a procedure that authorises people to complete the tasks, listing all the safeguards necessary to help the work process go smoothly.

In addition you will be able to:

Print blank permits

Fill in permits online

Fill in permits offline on a mobile enabled device

Gather electronic authorisation and signatures right on the devices

Create tasks and action trackers against a permit

Produce “real-time” reports and analysis


Facilities Management

Our new Facilities Management module sees the addition of a full asset management system to help you manage every stage of your asset maintenance and servicing cycle.
