Permit compliance

Manage your work orders online using Rapid’s issue permits to work software

Use our web-enabled safety system to access work orders on your computer. When you’re away from your desk, you can use the Rapid Global Admin Tools mobile app from anywhere.
Provide other administrators from your company with access to manage work orders. You can specify the level of permission each administrator can have to create, approve or reject work orders. Get an alert if the worker makes any changes to an approved work order.

Learn the answers to the most common questions asked about our software.

Will I still need paper copies of my permits?

No. This system eliminates the need for paper copies and ensures all permits are centrally stored in one database, providing a systematic approach to keeping records for auditing purposes.

What sort of permits can be included in the system?

All permits are able to be included, for example hot work, working at height, excavation/ break-in, electrical work, confined space, all clearance certificates.

What devices does Rapid Permit work on?

Currently, the system is designed to work on an iPad. We are developing the system to also be compatible with other platforms such as touch screens. iPads have been selected as the preferred device due to the portability and the flexibility of being able to carry the device whilst on the job.

Do I need to have Rapid Contractor in order to purchase Rapid Permit?

Yes. Rapid Permit operates in conjunction with Rapid Contractor. Contractor’s details are stored in Rapid Contractor and retrieved during the work request process. Rapid Contractor also performs the important function of ensuring the contractor company associated with the worker is compliant and fully insured. This ensures you are unable to issue work orders to uninsured or non-compliant contractor companies. If you would like a customised version that does not require Rapid Contractor, please speak with one of our sales staff to discuss the possible solutions.
