Excavation Permit to Work (Packs of 5)
A simple, yet comprehensive three-part document for use by all contractors who will be performing some form of excavation work whilst on your site.
The Excavation Permit to Work allows you and your contractor to consider and record all of the hazards connected with the work that they are going to conduct and the necessary precautions that must be taken. By considering these hazards, the opportunity for accidents is greatly reduced and therefore, the permit will help to protect the health & safety of employees and contractors.
The Excavation Permit to Work follows the HSE Guidance on permit to work systems HSG250 and is a three-part document split into four distinct sections.
The four sections record the details of the job, the hazards identified and precautions taken, issuing issuer and contractor signatures allowing work to begin with a hand back and cancellation section once the work has been completed.
Once the permit has been opened, one copy of the document is stored by the issuer, helping to identify all work currently taking place on site. This will prove useful when other contractors arrive in determining if there will be any potential conflicts in work activity. The second copy is kept in the control room (if different from the issuer’s office) and the final copy is given to the contractor to display in the area where they are working. The contractor copy contains a warning triangle on its reverse to highlight the fact that excavation work is taking place.
Once the work is complete or the end of the day arrives, all three copies are brought back together for hand back and cancellation.
