Hot Work

Hot Work

Hot Work is often associated with welding and cutting, but also includes any work activity with potential to produce ignition sources or excess heat, such as burning, brazing, grinding, soldering, or torch applied roofing. Failure to comply with Hot Work management and regulations are a leading cause of fire. This program outlines the risks associated with Hot Work, use of a Hot Work permitting system, and the requirements of local fire departments, including paid fire details.
