Hot Work Safety Training

Proper safety practices for welding, cutting, and grinding

The term "hot work" can describe several different types of work. What they all have in common is they involve processes involving a source of ignition in instances where flammable materials may be present. Examples of hot work include welding, soldering, cutting, and grinding. Hot work can present many dangers workers must be aware of before performing the job.

In many cases, a hot work permit is required. This is especially true in certain confined spaces where hot work can be a serious fire hazard. It is very important to give any employee proper hot work safety training if they plan to do any type of hot work. With these training courses, employees learn how to check for flammable gases before starting work, how to protect themselves from injury, and what protective gear to use.
