All employees deserve the highest level of health and safety protection whilst they are carrying out their work activities. Permits to Work (PTW) are a formal, documented, systematic way to control certain activities that present a high level of risk. The permit forms an essential part of a safe system of work. Employers have a duty to ensure that PTW are in place when required, and employees have a duty to co-operate with the agreed terms and conditions of the permit. If your work activities carry a high level of risk you need to consider our Permit to Work Systems Course

This e – learning module provides the essential information as outlined within health and safety legislation to demonstrate statutory compliance. The training makes clear both the employer’s and employee’s responsibility in addition to assisting with the practical application.

The module explains what PTWs are, why and when they are required, what should be considered, how they are issued and withdrawn and by whom. The training explains the principals of prevention and gives clear example of what is required to control hazards attached to high risk activity and residual risk.

The consequences of not providing suitable training can be disastrous in terms of human suffering, legal costs and business interruption. This is why more and more businesses are using e-learning to easily communicate the essential knowledge required when it comes to PTW systems.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
