Hot Work Safety and the Permitting Process

"Hot work" includes any tasks that involve flame or high heat, or can act as an ignition source. One in five industrial fires are caused by hot work and it can create major problems on construction sites as well. 

Hot work accidents result in more than $300 million in property damage and more than 30 fatalities per year, but these incidents are preventable.
