PTW – Definition and Pronunciation

[piː tiː ˈdʌbəljuː]

What is PTW?

PTW (Permit To Work) provides a structured approach to ensure a task is carried out safely. It ensures compliances with company procedures and the associated risk assessment. It must be assessed, authorised, monitored and cancelled correctly.

Examples of PTW

A PTW system is an integral part of a safe system of work and can help to properly manage a wide range of work-related activities. This is particularly true of maintenance work, where activities involve being in close proximity to normally restricted operations or energy sources.
