An Integrated Safe System of Work

The Pisys Electronic Permit to Work System ('PTW') is a web based system for creating and managing Permits to Work across any type of business or work site, for all types of hazardous work, such as working at height, confined space entry, hot and cold work, excavations.
PTW is used in manufacturing, engineering and construction, logistics, transportation, facilities and property management

The system works on most desktop and mobile devices using wi-fi or mobile networks. An offline iOS app is also available

Permit Boards

The virtual Permit Board is based on the permit boards found in site offices. It shows all current permits on one screen, and can be viewed from anywhere. This allows management an overview of all permits across the whole worksite. Management will be able to spot potential conflicts between ongoing jobs and manage risks better.
Permits can be printed for display at the work site. On completion of the work, ‘hand backs’ can be recorded and permits closed out to confirm that a job has been completed and the worksite left safe.

Improve safety and lower risk

The Permit to work software complements and even improves vital safety/risk conversations at the worksite and helps with task planning and risk management. The system helps streamline workflows, communication and contractor management and keeps everyone involved in planning, managing and doing the work informed.

The PTW system is easy to set up, and highly customisable. It is typically configured by key users themselves before the system is rolled out for use across the company or project. Key users create the Permit questions, using their own terminology and worksites. They can also create pre-defined answers to questions, such as yes/no, a selection from a drop-down list, or create an entry box for free-form information.

Fully Configurable

Pisys PTW is fully customisable and supports compliance with HSE/ISO/OHSAS Standards. It can be adapted to support your existing Control of Work or HSE Management System and is compatible with HSE Guidance on Electronic Permit to Work Systems, as per HSG250.
Permit to Work integrates with The Action Tracker and Task Risk Manager modules of the Pisys 360 Suite

Manage Handbacks with Inspection Stage

Ensure that all work has been done correctly before accepting a permit handback - inspections can be configured by you to match your exact requirements. Did the contractor do the job correctly? has the site been left tidy? has associated documentation been completed? We have all had situations where issues have been found after contractors have left the worksite. Putting an inspection stage into the handback process can help to ensure that the work has been completed to a high standard.

3-minute walkthrough


Pisys 360 Permit to Work software ('PTW') complements and even improves vital safety/risk conversations at the worksite and helps with task planning and risk management. The system helps streamline workflows, communication and contractor management and keeps stakeholders informed.


The permit to work software is highly configurable and will fit into users’ existing way of working, not the other way around – and because existing control of work systems can be transferred onto PTW, set-up & training times are kept to a minimum.


Management reports and statistics give insights of your use of the Permit system over time.

And because the PTW system compiles all information for you, nothing is lost or missed due to Human Error. The Permit Board will be complete, all permit questions answered, permits will be signed off and handed back, giving you confidence in your system. Permits are also saved in one place and can be accessed from anywhere – no more lost permits. Filter, Sort and Search options help you to find the permits you are looking for quickly and efficiently.

Pisys takes care of the data management and keeps your data secure. We are certified to the ISO 27001:2013 “Information Management Systems” Standard and PTW helps your organisation adhere to legislation and HSE Guidance.

Pisys 360 Permit to Work is part of the Pisys 360 Integrated HSE suite which also includes Action tracking, Task Risk Management and Operations Training Simulation.


Makes the transition from paper to electronic permit to work system simple:
Existing permit questions can be transferred to Pisys Permit to Work as part of the initial setup by yourselves. The electronic system will look and feel familiar to your personnel and contractors from the outset, and you can use your existing workflows. This keeps training times to a minimum and makes the switch to Pisys PTW easy. The system will fit in with your company, not the other way round.

But don’t take our word for it, see it for yourself:
Send us one of your permits, and we’ll show you it working on our system.
We like to be sure that Pisys Permit to Work meets your requirements and we have found that the best way to do this is to put one of your typical permits onto our system.

We then send you a link so you can look at it yourself, or – ideally – we organise a meeting where we talk through your requirements and illustrate – by using your permit – how Pisys 360 Permit to Work would fit your organisation.
