Our system provides practical process control for Task Risk Assessment, Permit Control, Certificates, Isolation Management and safety procedures as well as comprehensive audit management.
Our Q4 Safety ‘check and flow' methodology is designed to provide you with a more streamlined operation, offering tight controls and incorporating the ‘lessons learnt' method in order to ensure best practice and strict adherence to safety procedures.
We have also built in to Q4 Safety, a number of international standards including those set by the United States' Occupation Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the United Kingdom's Health and Safety Executive (HSE) together with other internationally recognised safety standards.
Q4 Safety also includes HSG 250 and HSG 253 which provide Guidance on Permit to Work Systems and the Safe Isolation of Plant and Equipment. Using these standards means our system draws upon the very best international industrial practice.
Q4 Safety offers a Front Line Safety tool for an Integrated Safe System of Work.
Integrated: Q4 provides a Work Order Register that is integrated to Risk Assessment, Permits and Isolation Management keeping all elements fully synchronized. The Work Order System can also be easily integrated to SAP, E1 or similar work management systems.
Permits: All types of permits can be effectively created and controlled including Isolations and Sanctions to Test. The system caters for the production of precise authorisation permits, issue and surrender control documentation as well as sophisticated print management including attachments.
Dashboard: In addition all work can be tracked on a visual dashboard to assist permit coordination, highlight potential work conflicts, facilitate placement of pin notes as well as providing automated alerts such as gas testing and expiry of permits.
Q4 Safety Integrated Safe System of Work brings you real safety benefits.
The system, while mirroring its paper-based predecessor, offers some distinct advantages. The intelligent process that precedes the production of an e-permit makes this application distinctly different to paper systems …
- by affecting the timing of people's actions,
- by the consistency of the safety checks, and
- by the quality of management information that is made available
The system encourages earlier submission of risk assessments, method statements and permit requests by staff and contractors. This gives authorisers more time to consider their assessment and influence events in advance. It also allows them to control more effectively changing conditions during the work process itself.
Our supporting Q4 Tools offer outstanding configuration capability to deliver your desired hazard and control setup, as well as exact permit formats and the process checks you may require.
All configurations use a single engine. This allows us to precisely match your needs on a proven and secure web or desktop platform.
And perhaps most importantly our Q4 Permit to Work document interface has been designed to be intuitive allowing easy management of documents with the added benefit
