Can you explain in more detail, the Incident tab (purple arrow) of the Permit to Work (PTW) system, in OHS Online? It's shown in the electronic PTW system image but you haven't explained anything about it!

Sure thing, well spotted! Yes, you are correct, it is included in the diagram but we haven't discussed it yet, so let's get on and do that now!

The incident tab is both a mandatory tab AND an optional tab, due to its nature. That sounds confusing, I know, so let's explain this further. The incident tab is optional in that it is only used when an incident occurs during the course of the contractor work. In the event that an incident occurs, then it becomes compulsory and has to be completed.

If the incident tab is completed, then it is printed as a separate appendix, signed by both parties and then added to the formal PTW document.
