§ 56 Safety clearance of activities

Planned activities shall be safety-cleared before they are carried out. The clearance shall indicate which conditions shall be met, including which measures shall be implemented before, during and after the work so that those participating in or who can be affected by the activity, are not injured, and so that the likelihood of mistakes that can lead to hazard and accident situations, is reduced.
Section last changed: 01 January 2011

In order to fulfil the safety clearance requirement, a work permit system should be used.
When activities are cleared in accordance with this section, a job safety analysis should be conducted when sub-activities are not covered by procedures, the procedures can conflict with each other, or the activities are new to the personnel involved.
