Digging Deeper into Technology to Enhance Mine Safety

The Challenge
Managers of companies who operate hazardous plants are fully responsible for the health and safety of the people who work there. A critical aspect of plant safety is to identify and reduce the risks associated with non-routine work such as confined space entry, hot work, working from heights and so on.
Paper-based permit-to-work systems lack the integrity required to ensure that work always takes place safely. Paper-based systems are prone to challenges with traceability, legibility, etc. Also, such systems are typically ineffective in assisting supervisors to identify adverse interactions between multiple work crews, which could lead to accidents resulting in injury, loss of life, environmental damage, impairment to the reputation of the company,and legal penalties.

SAFE Control of Work Webinar
The Solution
A proven software solution for managing the entire permit-to-work and isolation process with an emphasis on safety and reliability. It helps to ensure that hazards are correctly identified when maintenance takes place, and that the necessary safety precautions are understood and adhered to. Authorisation of permits is controlled and audited to ensure compliance to procedures, and increase accountability of the individuals involved.
Join us on Thursday, 25th May at 11h00 as we Dig Deeper into the tangible benefits of an Electronic Permit-to-Work.
