RoSPA Permit to Work Certification

The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA). Instructions or procedures are adequate for most work activities, but some require extra care. A “permit to work” is a more formal system stating exactly what work is to be done and when, and which parts of the work are safe. A responsible person should assess the work and check safety at each stage. Employees undertaking the job sign the permit to show that they understand the risks involved and what precautions are necessary.

Kigtek are aware of the regulations concerning more hazardous work activities and take steps to ensure we understand our duties and obligations in law. Our team is able to assess the requirements of a particular job or task and ensure that Permit to Work documentation is completed correctly, and that staff or contractors undertaking hazardous activities are competent to do so safely.
