Control of Work (CoW) processes, including permit to work, job hazard analysis, and isolation management, are critical for environment, health, and safety (EHS), and operations teams in the power and utilities industry.
CoW processes protect the safety of workers and ensure that productivity is maintained. Recently, forward-thinking power and utilities leaders have recognized the importance of digitalizing CoW processes.
As organizations within the sector aim for greater safety and efficiency, digital CoW solutions will become more critical, especially in the context of pressures to become more environmentally sustainable through renewable energy sources, such as wind and solar power.
Even though some companies are modernizing their plants to become more sustainable, they still need to derive value from ageing assets, including coal- and gas-fired power plants, and this can be accomplished with CoW software.
Wolters Kluwer’s Enablon was recently featured in the article “Automating Control of Work: What Power and Utilities Leaders Need to Know” in POWER Magazine. Check it out to learn more about CoW in the power and utilities industry, and to see the results of a survey on CoW processes and software.
