The worker must indicate how long they anticipate they will be on site for when they sign in. Should they fail to sign out, you are able to sign out on their behalf or the system can automatically sign the worker out.

Can the worker report any issues or hazards they might find when on site?

Yes. Rapid Permit has a feature to allow the worker to report issues and/or hazards at any time whilst on site.

Do I need to have Rapid Contractor in order to purchase Rapid Permit?

Yes. Rapid Permit operates in conjunction with Rapid Contractor. Contractor’s details are stored in Rapid Contractor and retrieved during the work request process. Rapid Contractor also performs the important function of ensuring the contractor company associated with the worker is compliant and fully insured. This ensures you are unable to issue work orders to uninsured or non compliant contractor companies.
