Poor organization of work permits / hot work leads to poor work execution for routine maintenance and capital projects, not to mention the risk of near misses and safety incidents.

Work Permitting + Mobile

The OESuite® Work Permitting + Mobile Module is interoperable – meaning, all key systems and areas work together from shared data and a shared operational view to achieve Operational Excellence – with all other OESuite® modules. This leads to more cohesive, efficient Control of Work (CoW) work process execution and effective work execution across an organization.

Through the inherent interoperability of OESuite®, users can:

  • Review renewal or expiration status of work permits and certificates in real-time
  • Anticipate project congestion through OESuite® Simultaneous Operations
  • Risk assess jobs and determine safety mitigations from the OESuite® Process Risk Module
  • Link to engineering information in the OESuite® Document Management + Mobile Module and leverage our integration to Microsoft SharePoint
  • Enable Pre-Startup Safety Reviews (PSSR) to be seamlessly conducted from the OESuite® Pre-Startup Safety Review + Mobile Module
  • View work permits in the work area within the OESuite® Operator Logs Module
  • Spawn work notifications and work requests from work permits and print work packs in the OESuite® Work Management + Mobile Module or other leading work order systems (i.e., SAP PM, IBM Maximo)

The mobile capabilities of OESuite® also enable your team to work online or offline to view permits and certificates, capture gas tests, enable PSSRs, and perform signoffs in the field and automatically sync information when next connected.

Technical Content for Safe Work

OS also offers optional technical content for the OESuite® Work Permitting + Mobile Module with ready-to-go processes, standards, policies, procedures, field guides, and audit protocols to accelerate time to value.
