The Permit to Dig is a critical component in any Safe System of Work, and needs to be strictly managed and monitored in order to safeguard excavation teams, whilst providing a watertight audit trail.

Our industry-standard Permit to Dig app allows your SPCO to ensure that permits only go live once comprehensive information about hazards, equipment and working methods have been approved, including electronically signed SSoW and RAMS declarations.

Our Permit to Dig app is based on industry-standards used by construction giants such as Network Rail and Siemens. It comes fully-built and ready to be deployed to your entire workforce free of charge in hours – all you need is a Nutshell subscription.

Nutshell makes it incredibly quick and easy to customise this mobile app to your organisation.

Not just the colours and logos either – you can change everything about it, from the information you capture to the entire tracking and sign-off workflow.

If you’d like this app integrated with the rest of your back-office software, that’s easy too. Nutshell comes with a range of plug n’ play connectors to back-office products such as MS Office 365.

Send your details to our Customer Success team today and someone will be in touch soon to show you the app in action, give your free access to a trial version and provide information on Nutshell’s subscriptions.

"Users are now forced to fill in every form and they're legible too, which minimises human error. We export the data weekly, which alone saves around one full admin salary a year."

How it works

With Nutshell, taking your business digital couldn’t be easier…

1. Buy a subscription

Your Nutshell Customer Success manager will be your new best friend guiding you through the process.

2. Sit back and relax

We’ll customise your apps to fit your workflow, add your colours and logo… or we can just leave them be.

3. Publish to your workforce

As soon as your staff login to Nutshell, they’ll have access to your customised mobile apps straight away.

4. Kick back and relax (again)

Think of all the fun ways you can spend the time and money you’ve saved not having to chase missing data!

Why Nutshell?

The trouble with off-the-shelf apps is that they don't talk to each other. You need to export and import data from one to another by hand, which is slow and expensive, and defeats the object of going digital in the first place.

Imagine if your Site Diary could pull-in relevant Accident and Close Call reports automatically, or if Timesheets could alert your Fatigue Management app when an employee has exceeded safe working hours all on its own. It can.
