We asked this civil engineering giant about their experience in using Pisys PTW to manage an NHS Hospital healthcare complex. The Challenge Why did you need an electronic Permit to Work system? We have a dynamic and constantly evolving business model and we needed a flexible electronic PTW which coped with ever increasing compliance and client demands along with a need to stream line the process in a more time efficient manner to free up operatives. What were the main requirements and features you were looking for We were looking for a system that adhered to ISO27001 to comply with
This is the unedited statement of the main user of Pisys Permit to Work who had the system up and running in a matter of days. It has been especially useful during the Covid lockdown whether he has share the app over Teams with contractors to complete permit issue, hand back and sign-off remotely. The Challenge After being tasked to find and implement something to replace our dated paper based permit to work system, I did some research and found the Pisys website. I found their website very informative and compared to other solutions, they didn’t require contact details just
In this guide we will create a Power BI visualisation (often shortened to ‘visual’) that uses ATMS API to display all the ATMS Actions for an ATMS project, in a pie chart with each slice representing a different action status. For this we need several things: Power BI desktop. ATMS API authentication token. ATMS Project Id. ATMS API Actions URL.   Install Power Bi Desktop Download and install Power BI Desktop from the following URL: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/desktop/ (Power BI is not free, although there is a free trial.) Power BI can combine data from multiple sources (APIs, databases, spreadsheets…) into dashboards
A permit to work system will help to ensure that all work performed on site is a. Planned and approved b. Performed safely, and c. That all necessary personnel are informed. As an example, imagine you run a food factory and one of your production lines needs some welding work - this seems straightforward but let's look at some of the things that may affect the safety/effectiveness of the task. Where will the work be done - is there anything or anyone nearby which could be impacted? - for example a tank containing inflammable liquids, combustible materials, a pedestrian walkway?
When you strip back any risk management system you (should) see what is really fundamental to every risk assessment - the accurate identification of hazards and the management of actions that must be taken to mitigate the hazard. We felt that there was a gap for a simple risk manager which focuses on the basics, hence Simple Risk Manager was born. It's simple to use for businesses of any size and it's a very simple way of creating a focus on risk within your team, and ensuring that nothing slips through the gaps.

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
