Undertaking hot work is highly hazardous and requires a Permit to Work.
Hot work includes:
- arc welding (including electric arc and plasma arc)
- brazing or soldering
- use of naked flames such as:
- oxy-acetylene (for welding or cutting)
- propane torches
- open flame weld heat treatment processes
- gas heating equipment
- any other process that produces a stream of sparks (e.g. use of cutting or grinding discs or wire buffing), and;
- use of electrical equipment with exposed heating elements.
The training takes you through each section of a generic Permit Form and explains how to complete it.
This course can be customised to use your organisation’s Hot Work Permit Form.
