Control of work

Whenever BP conducts construction, maintenance, demolition, remediation and other similar work that are typical of our industry, there is the potential for risk and harm to people and the environment and for damage to equipment. Therefore, an effective control of work process provides a work environment that allows tasks to be completed safely and without unplanned loss of containment with the potential to cause environmental damage or to damage a plant or equipment. 

The control of work procedures set out a required approach for BP employees and contractors to manage work risk.

Control of Work Procedures

BP HSSE Policies

BP Procedures

Permit to work templates

BP-authorised work permit issuing authorities have access to permit to work hard copy books. These authorised electronic files should only be used in accordance with BP’s control of work procedures.

Permit re-endorsers

BP work permits must be re-endorsed daily before work can begin. This can only be performed by people listed on the work permit as authorised to re-endorse.

From 1 July 2017, you must be competent in a BP online training course in order to be listed on a work permit. It is up to the permit writer to determine if you can endorse the permit, even if you have this training. You also need gas detector competence, as per PRO4.5-0001-1-01 Permit to Work.
