Dear Abhay

Let me try to answer you.

1. What is meant by work permit

Permit-to-work System is a formal written system used to control certain types of work which are potentially hazardous. It is also a mean of communication among site personnel to ensure all necessary safety precautions are taken before commencing such work.

2. As per factory act-1948 where is the mentioned it's types & use = Regret. Not sure about it. Types are as follows:
The types of work permits are:

(1) General Work Permit which includes :
i) Cold work permit
ii) Hot work permit
2) Special work permit
i) Confined space entry,
ii) Working at height,
iii) Excavation & fragile roof,
iv) Electrical work Permit (HT/LT)
v) Material lowering & lifting.

Cold work permit: It is first level permit issued for jobs of general nature not involving any special activities like confined space entry, working height, excavation, Electrical maintenance on HT / LT, material lowering and lifting.

Hot Work Permit: it is work permit issued for jobs involving activities which generates spark and flame. Welding, Gas cutting, grinding, chipping are few activities which necessarily should have Hot work Permit.

3. Which parameters need to be include in work permit? sample format?
Please let me know which one you looking for. I will help you in making one.

4. Is work permit required sign of safety officer ( if one safety officer is in org. then what to do if he is on leave) = No need of Safety Officer Sign

5. For routine maint. work permit is required? any sample format?

Yes. General Work Permit is required for all the job. Attach a sample format.

6. Who is authorised person to sign. the permit as per Standard system.

Minimum three persons sign needs to be in the work permit.
1. Job Executor.
2. Concerned Engineer
2. His reporting boss. (Permit Issuer)

Dear Friends,

I am watching the deliberations eagerly. Mr.Abhay posed a few questions. Mr.Dipil tried to answer one by one. Many others are feeding useful information. Ms.Hansa presented an easy to understand and informative power point presentation. Mr.Gopinathan Pillai presented a permit system in total which includes sample formats. However I still feel Mr.Abhay’s questions are not convincingly answered.

Can any of the friends make an attempt to directly answer these questions please?

Dear Abhay,
Some jobs in a factory are dangerous to life and therefore well advanced precautions are necessary before their commencement and till the completion. Hot work like welding and cutting, entering any confined vessel, working at height or on fragile roof, opening of dangerous pipelines, electric work and handling of chemicals. For the safety from such works a work permit system is highly essential.

A work permit system should cover following points:


Who requires a work permit ie. contractors, Engg, maintenance worker etc.
What jobs require a work permit ie. All maintenance jobs, tank cleaning etc
What type of permit are available


(1) General Work Permit which includes :
i) Cold work permit
ii) Hot work permit
2) Special work permit
i) Confined space entry,
ii) Working at height,
iii) Excavation & fragile roof,
iv) Electrical work Permit (HT/LT)
v) Material lowering & lifting.

Who is responsible for issuing work permit

Arrangements for recording the issue revalidation and retention of permit.

If one safety officer in the organization than only critical work like confined space entry, HOT WORK safety officer should sign. And rest of permits should be signed by safety coordinators. Sections/Dept wise safety coordinators help to implement permit system.

Which parameters need to be include in work permit? sample format?[/LIST]A] Hazards of the plant, chemicals, and work are fully explained.
B] Instructions are in details and fully understood
C] Work area should be clearly identified or Hazards highlighted.
D] In-charge of area who issue the permit should be competent and responsible.
E] Any monitoring including gas testing required before and after the work should be clearly specified.
F] When work is completed area in-charge signs off the permit stating that specified work is completed and plant is suitable to return to operation.
G] Closed permit should be returned back to concerned ie Safety coordinator/Safety officer.

Attached work permit format of our plant may help you.

Dear All

Thanks a lot for great participation in the thread... Surely benefit to all...

@ Hansa...

Presentaion is very nice, thanks for sharing...

@ Gopinadahn Pillai

Thanks for sharing the procedure on the topic...

@ Sanjay Sabalpara

Thanks for coming up with great explanations... Also thanks for sharing the sample of permits which you used in your plant...I am dis-agreeing with your following statement:
If one safety officer in the organization than only critical work like confined space entry, HOT WORK safety officer should sign. And rest of permits should be signed by safety coordinators. Sections/Dept wise safety coordinators help to implement permit system.

No sign of Safety Professional is required in any permit. Is there any law in India which stating the requirement of sign of a Safety Pro in the work permit...

The one who is executing (A qualified Engg.) the job is enough competant to access the job and taking required precautionary actions... Moreover its his prime responsibility to ensure safe job execution than the Safety Pro...

You can add the close for cross checking by safety dept. in the permit as follows... That means you can start the work even without the sign of a Safety Pro...

Cross Checking by Concerned Safety Officer

Above measures are cross checked and work can be continued.

Additional measures required, if any:
If Safety Pro found that any of the violation from the checkpoints during this cross check he is fully authorised to cancel the permit and for stopping the work.

@ Keshav Pillai

Waiting for your inputs mainly on questions 2, 4 & 5 sir.
