Hot Work / Welding

Hot work refers to any process that involves open flames, sparks, or generates heat sufficient to ignite combustible materials, such as welding, cutting, brazing, or soldering. In the Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) context, these activities pose significant risks due to the potential for fire hazards, burns, and exposure to hazardous fumes or gases. Proper training, adherence to safety protocols, and the use of personal protective equipment (PPE) like flame-resistant clothing, welding helmets, and ventilation systems are crucial to mitigate these dangers. Risk assessments, fire watch personnel, and strict protocols regarding flammable materials in the vicinity are essential elements of ensuring the safety of hot work and welding operations in the workplace.
