Promises a fresh intuitive gateway to a safer workforce culture.

Yokogawa RAP announced the launch of RAP4, its Digital Control of Work (CoW) software. With significant new functionality, RAP4 provides a fresh intuitive gateway to a safer workforce culture, per its maker.

Allied with the RAP Cortex knowledge base of potential hazards and mitigating controls, RAP4 is an intelligent alternative to the simple digitization of paper-based formats and continues to place risk assessment at the forefront of the permitting process, according to Yokogawa, which notes that this advanced and user-centric software has been given a full reconfiguration refresh, with updated and streamlined workflow processes throughout, taking the system to new levels of user friendliness. Additional permit and isolation functionality, as well as native Android and iOS applications, have also been added to further improve safety and efficiency.

The RAP4 System boasts smart, simple, clear, and intuitive modules with the intelligence to assure complete Control of Work (CoW) audit compliance and drive continuous safety improvement.  

Yokogawa RAP’s Head of Sales, Mark Breese, said, "We are incredibly excited to officially launch this fourth major release of the Yokogawa RAP software for Control of Work (CoW). We have already seen significant interest, and as part of the Yokogawa Group are easily able to support our customers and potential customers, wherever they are around the world, with local expertise and technical capability. RAP4 takes the digital user experience to new levels. Beneath it sits the RAP Cortex, where the experience we’ve gained over 25+ years is held ready for instant use. With this new release I think we’ve made things even more intuitive and, with some our newer or upgraded modules, we’ve created a truly worthy set of tools that can work together or independently and that can dovetail with existing plant systems to form a truly seamless Digital Control of Work (CoW) process."
