Permits to work

This may either take place as part of the procurement process or by separate agreement. 

Estates Services is developing a comprehensive permit to work process to ensure effective health and safety compliance in relevant situations and environments – see below for the information currently available.

Please contact the Estates Helpdesk for further guidance

All contractors must agree with Estates Services the appointment of an individual who will be responsible for the work

They must also be competent to assess that the work has been carried out in accordance with required standards.  The individual will attend an induction by Estates Services to cover working practices and safeguards.

You can find more information in our Code of Practice for electrical safety on low voltage systems and in our series of guidance notes – you can view these on the right hand side of this page.
