Hot Safety Works


246 Ratings

Course Overview

Welding, grinding, cutting, open flame and other spark producing tools and operations are all capable of starting dangerous fires in our workplaces. Collectively known as hot work, such processes require specific permits and procedures be followed to prevent the ignition of vapors, liquids and solids that may be in or near the work area. Careless hot work operations can quickly lead to fires, extensive property damage, severe injuries or death. This program discusses the safe work practices that should be taken to prevent such incidents and reviews the responsibilities of those workers involved in hot work tasks. 

As per guidelines of OSHAD-SF – Code of Practice 28 – Hot Works Safety
