Hot Work Program
If your organization performs operations or maintenance involving open flame, sparks, or high heat, the answer is likely you are required to have this program. This includes operations such as brazing, cutting, drilling, welding, grinding, soldering and torch work. The prevention and protection against fires and other hazards associated with hot work can be addressed by general requirements as specified by OSHA standard 29CFR 1910.252. This applies to employees working within a designated hot work area as well as those working outside of a designated hot work area.
The Hot Work Program has been established to help protect the safety of employees and property by establishing appropriate hot work procedures and designated areas for hot work operations.
