Introduction to Hot Work

 

The award of the Passport shows employers and clients that the hot work operatives and managers they use have demonstrated a level of knowledge and understanding of fire safety that will contribute to safe and effective hot work in most buildings or areas where construction, alteration or maintenance work is taking place.
Serious fires frequently occur during construction or maintenance operations, when work is being done on machinery or on the fabric of the building. Many such fires result from carelessness and/or ineffective supervision during operations requiring the use of open flames or the local application of heat, generally known as hot work. This manual comprises of a scheme for supervising and recording the activities of hot work operatives. It is reckoned that implementation of the measures described within this document will result in fewer fires arising from hot work.

As previously mentioned serious fires can occur during maintenance and construction operations. Most of these are a result of carelessness and ineffective supervision during operations requiring the use of open flames or the local application of heat. To prevent this from happening a risk assessment needs to be carried out whenever hot work is being contemplated.
