Permit to Work Form Checklist

A permit to work is a legal document that gives your company permission to start a task that’s physically dangerous to workers, will potentially disrupt other business sectors, or addresses ecological concerns that the job might raise. An example of this is obtaining stormwater permits, which aim to prevent pollution to nearby bodies of water. The following template will cover the required documentation and e-permits as well as common problems people may encounter during the submission process.

Ensuring Safety and Compliance with a Permit to Work Form Checklist


A permit to work form is a document that gives companies permission to start a task that could be physically dangerous to workers, potentially disrupt other business sectors, or raise ecological concerns. To ensure safety and compliance, companies should use a permit to work form checklist.


The checklist should include critical details such as the task being performed, the location, the expected duration, and the potential hazards associated with the task. It should also require documentation of training and competence of the workers performing the task and any equipment to be used.


The permit-to-work form checklist should also include an assessment of potential risks and mitigation measures, such as personal protective equipment, emergency response plans, and environmental protection measures. Additionally, it should outline the communication protocols and any work restrictions or requirements.


By using a permit to work form checklist, companies can ensure that all necessary safety and compliance requirements are met before starting a task. This helps to reduce the risk of injury, prevent environmental damage, and ensure that the job is completed safely and effectively.

Please note that this checklist template is a hypothetical appuses-hero example and provides only standard information. The template does not aim to replace, among other things, workplace, health and safety advice, medical advice, diagnosis or treatment, or any other applicable law. You should seek your professional advice to determine whether the use of such a checklist is appropriate in your workplace or jurisdiction.
