The term “hot work” refers to any labour that involves open flames, produces sparks, or can start a fire by other means. This typically includes welding, wheel or torch cutting, brazing, soldering, and grinding, but it can include other work.

Because this type of work poses such a unique combination of both safety and health hazards to workers, it requires a substantial amount of controls. When following proper procedures and using the controls that are in place, these hazards can be greatly reduced. Upon successful completion of this course, you should be able to identify:

  • Hazards of hot work
  • Basic requirements for performing hot work
  • Elements of equipment safety
