A safety work permit system is a formal procedure to ensure that the system of work is properly planned and implemented for jobs which have a significant risk. Permits are most often required for maintenance work where normal safeguards cannot be used, or where new hazards are introduced by the work.
It is a document that includes a description of the work to be performed, the hazards involved, the precautions to take, the required authorizations, and other elements. It is a written record authorizing a specific work at a specific location, and for a specific time.
