Involved in hazardous operations and other forms of non-routine work? Then, you understand the need to implement stringent work risk controls, measures that go above and beyond safe work protocols for routine jobs. In fact, statutory requirements in your work jurisdiction and industry might actually be pushing you toward taking formalized steps to mitigate the manifold work health and safety risks associated with dangerous jobs.
An essential (and often legally mandated) feature of control of work is the permit to work process. This measure represents a concrete step a stakeholder can (and should) take to control work deemed potentially hazardous.
