Permit to Work Software

Standardize work practices to ensure safe, efficient work execution.

The Stakes Have Changed. Today’s Operating Environment Is Tough.

There’s pressure to simultaneously improve productivity and efficiency. Scrutiny from regulators and the public is higher than ever. In the digital age, closing-the-loop between Operations, Maintenance, Planning, Engineering, and HSE to get more work done safely and efficiently is no longer a nice to have. It’s the new standard. But turning strategic intent into operational reality on the ground isn’t easy.

By establishing consistent working practices and conditions, hazardous industry operators can improve their safety performance and prevent incidents. But, permit to work software must be fully integrated into Operational Risk Management architectures to produce real value, and that’s where most permit to work software falls short.

Your Journey to Operational Risk Management Starts Here

Sphera’s Permit to Work software delivers a single, shared view of the operational reality. It arms everyone with the right information at the right time so that they can make more informed, effective operational decisions. For a holistic, real-time view across an entire facility, Sphera’s solution combines information from permits, isolations, hazards, maintenance shifts, and SIMOPS.

The industry 4.0 technology integrates risk analysis across domains and through seamless integration with asset performance management software to deliver a real-time view of the operational reality and the ability to mitigate interdependent risks through the work permissions process.

Information about asset health, mechanical integrity, and equipment-related risk are accounted for in the context of potentially hazardous work activities. And maintenance work such as inspections, repairs, and preventative work are executed only after all safety measures are in place – whether it be a LOTO process, a hot work or fire protection measure, safe confined space entry, and more, to ensure a safe working environment.

Our Permit to Work Software is consistently recognized by prominent analyst and media properties.
