The purpose for the hot work permit program is to ensure that spark and flame producing construction and maintenance activities do not present an undue fire hazard to the people and property of OSU.
Hot work includes any operation producing flame, sparks or heat. Examples of hot work include, but are not limited to, torch cutting, welding, brazing, grinding, sawing, torch soldering, thawing frozen pipes and applying roofing.
