Hot work can be defined as any operation such as brazing, cutting, welding, grinding, soldering, or torching that can cause sparks or flames. While such work is necessary, the hazards associated can be minimized through an effective hot work permit program.

The content in this course is designed to comply with the intent of the applicable regulatory requirements. Learner objectives are to: identify key elements of a hot work permit program, describe the primary roles and responsibilities of key personnel involved in a compliant hot work permit program, and recall controls used to minimize the risk of fire and injury during hot work operations.
