Safety Brief - Hot Work Permits
Hot Work includes any operation producing flame, sparks, or heat, such as torch cutting, welding, brazing, grinding, sawing, and soldering. A Hot Work Permit is required whenever any hot work activity is conducted outside of an area designated for hot work. The permit acts as a checklist to ensure precautions are taken to prevent the ignition of inflammable or combustible materials in a 35-foot area surrounding the work.
- Hot Work Permits must be posted in a visible location at the worksite.
- All Hot Work Permits and notifications must be submitted 24 hours before the start of hot work activities.
