Available in these formats
Hot Work Safety and the Permitting Process discusses the hazards encountered in hot work and focuses on how employees can use the permitting process and other safe practices to perform hot work tasks safely. Hot work includes any tasks that involve flame or high heat, or can act as an ignition source. One in five industrial fires are caused by hot work and it can create major problems on construction sites as well. Hot work accidents result in more than $300 million in property damage and more than 30 fatalities per year, but these incidents are preventable.
Areas covered in the course include hot work and its hazards, the purpose of a Hot Work Permit and the first steps in the permitting process, preparing the work area and performing hot work safely, hot work in confined spaces, and more.
