Workplace Fire Prevention and Hot Work Operations

“Hot work” can be defined as jobs that are spark-producing and can thus cause a fire in the workplace. Examples of these kinds of jobs include grinding, welding, and cutting. All kinds of hot work require special permits and safety protocols in order to be performed safely. This is critical because the risks posed by these jobs include fire, extensive property damage, severe injury, and even workplace death. Performing hot work tasks can quickly ignite solids, liquids, and vapors in the workplace environment, leading to the aforementioned hazards. Reducing and preventing the workplace fire risks is key, and the viewer of this workplace fire prevention training video will acquire the necessary tools to do so.

Many companies have developed an internally-written hot work safety program, and some facilities have areas dedicated solely to hot work.
