Permit Sign Rights

Permit Sign Rights define what users can see and are authorised to do in the PTW system, e.g. see the Management Statistics, create, approve or hand back permits.

Each user is assigned a Permit Sign Right, e.g. Authorised Engineer, External Contractor, View Only.

For example: User Joe Bloggs has been assigned the ‘Authorised Engineer’ Permit Sign Right. This means that Joe Bloggs can create, edit and reject permits, but he is not allowed to approve any special permits,

For more information on user setup and how to assign Permit Sign Rights to users see the section on Creating, Editing and Archiving Users.
