This unit of competency covers the skills and knowledge required to work in accordance with an issued permit. It aims to ensure that people working under a permit to work understand the system, know the limitations of the permit under which they are working and comply with all the requirements of the permit. The people to whom this unit applies may be called ‘permit recipients’ or ‘permit holders’ by some organisations. Some organisations call ‘permits’ ‘clearances’.
Participants will gain the following skills and knowledge:
- Types and scopes of permit
- Types of tests or inspections
- Hazards and hazard controls
- Preparing for and working under a permit
- Regulatory framework and organisational procedures
This unit of competency applies to persons who are required to conduct work activities under the authority of an issued permit to work and within the context and requirements of that permit. This typically applies to all work done by maintenance staff and contractors and also to any other non-process work performed on the plant.
This unit of competency applies to an individual working alone or as part of a team/work group and working in liaison with other team members, as appropriate.
No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.
