Permit to Work Case Studies

Case Study: This key player in the automotive parts industry swapped their paper-based permit system for Pisys PTW. It took only 3 months from initial enquiry to going live with the new system throughout their manufacturing plant, which produces components for passenger, commercial and racing vehicles. The result is a reduction in workload for the Permit Manager, shared responsibilities and better control over the whole permit cycle from creation to close-out. The company also added a ‘Contractor Work Authority’ form for minimal risk tasks to the system – giving them a complete overview of every planned an ongoing job throughout

Case Study: This Pisys customer – a well-known Japanese engineering firm – introduced our cloud-based PTW software on a $985.7 million construction project of a new fertiliser plant in the Caspian Region, which is managed remotely from Japan. The whole construction project benefits from increased safety, better communication across different languages and reduced waiting times for permits to be approved. The Requirements: This customer was looking for a robust, simple to use, simple to introduce electronic system that could: cope with large volumes of permits support 8 different permit types within the same permit form (e.g. Hot Work, Working at

Case Study: This snacks manufacturer went digital and re-designed their Permit to Work System at the same time with the help of Pisys PTW. The software now helps the company’s 250 staff work safely across their 3 locations and in areas with delicious names, such as “Chocolate Tank” and “Sugar Silo”. The Challenge: A Complete PTW System Overhaul Having watched the online PTW demo on the Pisys website, this company called and arranged a live demo. They were open to a completely new approach to Permit to Work, instead of simply converting an existing paper system. They did not send

Case Study: This Metallurgy Plant with its own hydro-electric Power Station required an electronic PTW system to help with communication  – but all systems they saw were too complex, too expensive and too different from the paper systems they were used to. Pisys PTW delivered an easy-to-use, cost-effective and simple-to-implement solution. The Challenge: High Standards and Costs The company employs around 160 people, specifically trained for the various operations within the plant. They work to the most demanding Environmental, Quality and Health & Safety standards and hold registrations to ISO 14001:1996, ISO 9001:2000, OHSAS 18001:1999 and EMAS. Permits were managed
Case Study: This Rail Solutions Provider introduced Pisys Permit to Work in two of their Train Maintenance Centres to establish a process of prompt hand-backs  – and reaped extra benefits at the same time: better KPIs and a bird’s eye view of ongoing work on plot plans. The Challenge: Completing Permit Hand-Backs The customer's well-established existing paper permit system served them well in the run-up to a job. But once the work was complete, hand-backs were regularly late or missed altogether. HSE Management spent valuable time chasing contractors for the paperwork. Then, more time was spent on archiving the paper
Case Study: This global oil and gas company uses Pisys PTW on 7 of their vessels to manage Permits to Work and Isolations while out at sea. The software is installed on a server on board of each vessel and is accessed via the vessel’s WiFi network. The Challenge: Overcoming Legacy Systems while Retaining Company Processes This company had undergone a merger and was left with two legacy permit systems – one a complex ISSOW software, one an admin-intensive paper system. Having reviewed both systems, management at the company’s UK sites concluded that neither system gave them exactly what they

Case Study:This Middle Eastern Farming and Food & Drinks Manufacturing Company, which employ 40 000 staff, successfully implemented Pisys PTW. They achieved better communications through automatic email notifications and a geographical representation of permits in factories at remote desert locations. As a result, they can manage concurrent jobs, and HSE Management can visualize all ongoing work at all sites at a glance. The Challenge: Too Much Admin, Not Enough Overview There was a paper permit to work system in place already, but this customer found it to be too admin-intensive and it did not give them the communication between remote
Case Study: This agricultural technology company introduced Pisys Permit to Work software at one of their R&D Sites as part of an efficiency drive.  They achieved a speedier approvals process, knowledge of where contractors were working within their site and a site-wide overview for all ongoing work on a plot plan. The Challenge: Co-ordinating Permit Approvals Across a Vast Site The sheer size of the site – consisting of a vast research greenhouse, laboratories, office buildings and a 640-acre working farm – presented its own challenges: the company’s PTW process required three authorisation signatures on a paper permit before it
