2 Why Change?Dow Global EH&S Standards have been reviewed and the requirements have been reduced and simplified,Freeport Additions to the global standard have been reviewed and all Freeport specific additions to the global SWP standard have been removed.This will allow TXO to align with global training tools and minimize resource burden to incorporate Freeport additions.
3 Summary of Changes One NEW requirement: It is required to document the transfer of a SWP to another permit issuer.If the Personnel Issuing a Safe Work Permit leaves the work site while work is still being done and can no longer perform his/her responsibilities (for example at the end of shift), then:The Safe Work Permit is required to be transferred to another person who is authorized to issue a Safe Work Permit.
