Our work sites are varied and include office buildings through to power stations, dams, canals and green-field construction sites all with very different risks. As such, the requirement for training increases for those working in high risk hazardous areas. Hydro Tasmania has built on the good work of Tasmanian Power System Safety Rules system(P.S.S.R) to form a new Permit To Work system (PTW). Our PTW system provides better protection when working on both mechanical and civil assets, as well as electrical assets which are the primary focus in the PSSR system. This does mean that the specific PTW training is required to work on Hydro Tasmania sites.
