What is a Hot Work Permit?

PURPOSE OF THE HOT WORK PERMIT:

The Hot Work Permit system is intended to assure that the individuals involved in construction, renovation, repairs and maintenance of Bedrock managed facilities are aware of the hazards associated with hot work and welding and that they implement control measures to help mitigate them. The Hot Work Permit is the means by which the Bedrock Property Management Team will be able to keep track of construction activities that involve hot work, and that these activities are being conducted safely. The hot work permit also provides a step-by-step check list for hot work fire safety and serves as a reminder to contractors of their fire prevention responsibilities before, during, and after any hot work is conducted.

DEFINITION OF HOT WORK:

Hot Work is defined as cutting, welding, soldering and brazing operations for construction/demolition/maintenance/repair activities that involve the use of portable gas, arc welding equipment, die or angle grinders, or any equipment that will generate any amount of sparks capable of creating a fire hazard.

SCOPE:

All operations in buildings/facilities owned or maintained Bedrock Real Estate Services, which are occupied during a significant renovation, repair or maintenance activity. (Occupied is defined as “the presence of one or more persons”).
