A hot work permit is required for temporary job tasks that involve open flames or producing heat and / or sparks. A hot work permit is a critical safety measure designed to mitigate the risks associated with tasks such as welding, cutting, and brazing. By obtaining a hot work permit, companies are able to ensure that proper precautions are taken to prevent fires and explosions in areas where flammable materials may be present. The process typically involves a thorough assessment of the work area, implementation of fire prevention measures, and the assignment of trained personnel to oversee and execute the task at hand. Understanding the importance of hot work permits is essential for maintaining a safe working environment and preventing potential hazards in industrial settings.

Examples might include: Brazing, Soldering, Grinding, Torch Applied Roofing or Welding


With a hot work permit, you might assess the following:

- condition and status of water hoses and fire extinguishers available
- condition and status fo hot work equipment
- elimination of environmental conditions that could be a hazard (i.e. explosive atmosphere)
- provision of fire watch
- condition and status of surface areas
- access ways assessment

- combustible floors been wet down, covered with damp sand or covered with fire resistant sheets?

These are just a few or many areas you might include in a hot work permit form. Additionally you need to capture the contractors details who is completing the work and have a proper permit to work system process for approval and notification workflows.
