RAPnet Isolation Module

RAPnet’s Isolation Module allows users to ensure that all energies associated with the equipment to be worked on have been completely removed. The system is comprehensive yet simple to use, accommodating all energy sources and equipment.

The system fully integrates with the RAPnet permitting process where isolation can be created as standalone items or associated with tasks and permits.

These procedures can then be templated for use with similar equipment, after suitable editing, and isolations can be stored away for future use.

All actions within the procedure are competence driven and require correct signature at relevant points.

What are the benefits?

  • Specifiy all equipment associated with the isolation
  • Identify and control all energy sources
  • Attach drawings and schematics
  • Automatic printing of isolation labels
  • Link to work control permit to ensure correct status before work starts
  • Full LOTO (Lockout Tagout) compliant
  • Use of mobile devices confirm isolation status

RAPnet Mobile

  • A Mobile Application optimized for small screen use
  • A platform independent web-based application
  • GIS map integration
  • Location based signatures and measurements make permit issue procedure quicker and easier
  • Barcode / RFID scanner integration
  • Multiple languages
Device Sensors

Certain devices are able to read UHF RFID tags attached to equipment and retrieve related permits and/or current location. The RFID tag will be programmed to include an identification key that can be associated with a location and equipment attached.

All devices will read 1D and 2D codes on printed isolation tag labels to initiate an action such as signing for the isolation. This enables fast isolation tag identification. If GPS is included on a device the current location can be logged and location specific tasks can be quickly identified and acted upon.

Synchronisation

All mobile solutions will synchronise wirelessly with RAPnet Mobile servers.

RAPnet Permits can be taken into the field using specialised pc’s for issue at the work site.

Benefits include:

  • Improved Planning
  • Issue at the workplace
  • Risk Assessment of current conditions
  • Improved communication between all parties
  • Login and see what is going on out in the field

Once the workplace discussions have taken place and the local conditions assessment carried out, the Permit can be released. The Tablet PC is then taken back to the Permit Office where the new status can be uploaded and synchronised with all other work.

The control room operators see the active status in the field meaning both parties are in sync.

Features

  • A Mobile Application optimised for small screen use
  • Location based signatures and measurements make permit issue procedure quicker and easier
  • Barcode / RFID scanner integration
  • Multiple languages
  • Fully compliant with ATEX supported devices currently on the market

What are the benefits?

  • Efficient use of outside personnel
  • Promotes engagement with the RAPnet work control system
  • Ensures accuracy and compliance in work place identification
  • Augments and enhances existing RAPnet functionality

RAPnet Reporting Module

The RAPnet Reporting Module allows the user to create and run reports using current and historical data derived from all Job, Task, Isolation and Personnel activity in RAPnet. For example, a report could be created showing all permits completed in an area over a given time period.

Alternatively, a report could also be created showing how many isolations were requested in a given area or on certain equipment.

Dashboards can also be set up allowing an instant view of key KPIs e.g. How many of today’s planned permits have been completed? Or How many Confined Space activities are currently ongoing. The dashboards can be set up to automatically refresh and multiple dashboards can be used in a slideshow format - ideal for displaying on display panels at various locations around the site.

The Routing Element can be applied at both the ‘application’ stage and at the approval stage i.e. once all risk assessment has been made, appropriate documents attached, initial concurrence achieved etc. The Routing Element can be completely configured to each client’s requirements.

Dashboards
  • Built from the RAPnet reports
  • Custom Design
  • Visualise as Data Lists, Counters and Graphs Automatically Refresh every minute / hour / day…….
What are the benefits?
  • Quick overview of ‘what is going on’
  • Share with other users in RAPnet or via Email
  • Standalone option for use with Display Panels
  • Simple reporting of Management KPI’s

RAPnet Turnaround

Time Savings

The speed at which permits can be issued during turnarounds can have a large effect upon overall performance, with any delays in issuing impacting upon the time taken to get the job done. RAP’s upfront planning capability, its flexible rules and barcode controls greatly enhance this process giving potential for large savings.

Cost Savings

The reduction in hold-ups is complemented by the smooth alignment of work processes, wth the Contractors, Planner and Operations personnel all working together in complete understanding. This can result in huge cost savings too, with one large (million manhour) Turnaround being reduced by nearly 10% equivalent to 3 days.

Bar and QR Codes

The use of Bar and QR Codes in turnarounds gives enhanced control, easier visibility of jobs and improved awareness, resulting in:

  • Simple instruction for contractors giving them 100% certainty of what to do in any instance
  • Accessible and targeted messaging so that contractors can be made aware of safety and job-related issues
  • Simple but safe operation of the system
  • One click access to: risk assessments / permits / contractor identification
  • Effective permit control
  • Eliminates contractor delays
Contractor Work Control
  • All non-conformities logged and reported
  • Simplified Contractor Instruction
  • Improved Contractor Awareness
  • Improved Contractor Behaviours
What are the benefits?
  • Simple, Fast & Effective Permit Handling
  • Improved Contractor Behaviours
  • Less Contractor Waiting Time

RAPnet GIS

RAP can be configured to use plot plans/maps hosted by WMS (Web Map Service) servers. Most major GIS providers support WMS. WMS maps can have multiple layers which can be turned on/off by the end user, and different information can be displayed at different zoom levels.

Map features can have information embedded in them (such as equipment details) so that when the mouse is moved over them a tool tip or other information can be displayed.

Current Plot Plans start out as CAD files or Satellite Images and then the images generated from them are used in RAP.

What are the benefits?
  • Allows a detailed view of large, extended areas
  • Detail can increase as you zoom in
  • RAP supports any WMS compliant server, including ESRI ArcGIS, GeoServer & MapServer
  • WMS compliant GIS Server built into RAP - allows easy viewing of data in your existing GIS software

RAPnet Utilities & Infrastructure

What is the UI module?

The UI module has been developed to cater for businesses with widely distributed asset bases and where a high degree of communication between consenting and affected parties is crucial. The module comprises:

GIS Capability

  • Show layers of infrastructure
  • Detail pinpoint and general areas of work
