taken. Work can only start when safe procedures have been defined and put
into place. The permit provides a clear written record, signed by a responsible
person, that all foreseeable hazards have been considered and all necessary
actions have been taken. It must be in the possession of the person in charge
of the operation before work can commence.

Cold Work

Cold work shall include but not be limited to the following: scaffolding,
bunkering, cleaning, over board working, painting (unless needle gunning),
insulation work, pressure testing, maintenance operations which require the
removal of critical HSE systems from service e.g. fire & gas, public address, life
saving or fire fighting systems etc.

Hot Work

Work that may generate a source of ignition releasing a quantity of energy


sufficient to ignite an explosive atmosphere

Hazardous Area

Area in which an explosive gas / air mixture is likely to occur in normal


operations

Operating Company /
Client

The Oil Company renting / chartering the Drilling Jack Up for an assignment

Company

Discharge of any stored or induced electrical energy
The use of insulated mats, screens, gloves and tools.
The use of appropriately designed and rated test equipment.
Making sure persons doing the work are competent
The use of safe system of work.

To ensure the integrity of isolations once applied, the keys of padlocks used to effect the isolations will be
placed with a copy of the isolation certificate in a lock out box.
The Electrical Isolation Certificate form is in Red.
No alteration of the above colour is permitted (either by print or photo copy) as this may create confusion.

5.5

WORK REQUIRING MECHANICAL ISOLATION

Whenever maintenance or modification work is to be carried out on mechanical equipment, the Mechanic on
duty shall perform the isolation and a Mechanical Isolation Certificate shall be issued.
Mechanically driven equipment which has been shut down for repair or maintenance shall be disconnected

Both outgoing and incoming authorized employees assemble at lockout/tagout point


Outgoing employee removes his locks/tags
Incoming employee replaces with his locks/tags
Outgoing employee advises of any potential hazards
Appropriate isolation certificate will be filled and attached to the Work Permit

The keys of padlocks used to effect the isolations will be placed with a copy of the isolation certificate in a
lock out box. The Mechanical Isolation Certificate form is in Green.
No alteration of the above color is permitted (either by print or photo copy) as this may create confusion.
Note: The Lockout/Tagout box shall be located inside the Radio Room

5.6

SIGNING OF WORK PERMIT PRIOR TO WORK

The Work Permit shall be signed, into the box 12, for approval by the Client Representative and Barge
Captain.
The Barge Captain is entitled to sign for approval all Work Permits (except Hot Work Permit) issued for any
job to be done, during his shift, in areas that are under the responsibility of the Rig Superintendent.
The Tour Pusher on duty in the night shift is entitled to sign the work permits as Responsible Supervisor for
any job to be done in their area of competency except of Hot Work Permit.
When signing for approval, the Barge Captain shall ensure that no other jobs, which may interfere with the
one that he is going to approve, are in progress. He shall also check that all the necessary protective
equipment and safety precautions are identified into the work permit and that the persons to be informed

When signing Work Permits, the Barge Captain and the team leader shall evaluate if the work could also
have influence on other sections' work. If so, they shall discuss the work with the relevant Section Leaders
before issuing the Work Permit.
(e.g.
If the Maintenance Section need to shut down any equipment which are in their section and these
equipment may influence the drilling operation, the maintenance Section Leader shall notify the Rig
Superintendent to make sure that the work will not create any problem for the drilling operations in progress.
This also applies if they shut down a back-up system, which are normally not used. Then the Rig Supt. shall
at least be notified so he can pass the information on to his crew).
Any modification regarding changing of the persons nominated to sign for approval the Work Permit as
mentioned in paragraph 5.6 shall be made only by the Barge Captain who shall issue a Standing Order
referring to the matter.
Depending on the circumstances and whenever deemed necessary the Barge Captain may require
endorsing any Work Permit that has been already approved by Clients representative.

5.7

If the test fails, the person who opened the Work Permit and required the withdrawal of the Isolation
Certificate shall sign in the box 8b of the Isolation Certificate for revalidation / extension of the isolation due
to test failure.
The Work Permit shall remain open until the job is finished or the 12 hours extension has expired.

5.11 LONG TERM ISOLATION


In the event it is necessary to isolate a piece of equipment for an extended period of time due to equipment
damage or waiting on parts to complete maintenance, the following procedure will be followed:

Work Permit will be raised and an isolation certificate completed. A record of the isolation will be made in
the Isolation Log and added on the Active Isolation list displayed in the Radio Room. The equipment will
be isolated, locked and tagged out. When isolation of the equipment has been completed (i.e.-removal of
the equipment) all safeguards will then remain in place and work permits will be opened/closed during
further work/repairs process on the equipment.

When work/repairs have been completed on the isolated equipment, the following steps will be followed.
First a new Work Permit will be raised to cover the de-isolation process. All lockout/tagout equipment will
be removed following all safety procedures. Once the equipment is back in service and all system have
been returned to a safe condition, both Permits will be cancelled.

Long Term Isolation Log shall be maintained and kept up to date at Radio Room. A simple log sheet with
columns to record the following minimum details will be satisfactory: Original permit number, date of
isolation, type (electrical or mechanical), equipment or system isolated, reasons for isolation, date of deisolation and Cold Work Permit number to perform de-isolation.

Long Term Isolation Log Form No.: PN3-PRO-HSE-010-E.

The Safety Officer shall carry out spot checks and sign into the appropriate box on the copy of the Work
Permit posted in the Radio Room.
The system will also be audited during regular HSE Management System Audits and will be reviewed and
revised as necessary to maintain its effectiveness.

5.13 JOB SAFETY ANALYSIS


The Job Safety Analysis shall be discussed and conveyed to all personnel involved in the task that Work
Permit is opened for according to the procedure PN3-PRO-HSE-032.
The copy of the JSA report is to be kept in a file with the permit to work and attached to the appropriate
permit.
