A Hot Work Permit is a document issued by the employer to authorise work involving hot work such as welding, cutting, grinding, or brazing, in areas within the workplace where there is a risk of fire or explosion. The purpose of a hot work permit is to ensure that adequate control measures are implemented to prevent fire, explosions, and other hazards.
The hot work permit typically outlines the type of work to be performed, the location, the equipment to be used, and the precautions that must be taken to ensure that the work is carried out safely. The permit is usually issued by a designated person or a team responsible for the safety of the worksite and is valid for a limited period.
The permit may require that fire protection equipment, such as fire extinguishers and fire blankets, be available at the work site, and that any flammable materials be removed or protected before the hot work begins. It may also require that the work area be monitored for a certain period after the hot work is completed to ensure that no smoldering or other hazards remain.
The iProtectU software contains a Permit Management System which has a designated register to file contractor and visitor permits such as hot work. The system allows the user to create, view, edit, close and approve permits as well as view expired permits within the organisation. The iProtectU system also features a permit calendar and a permit metrics overview.
