The purpose for the hot work safety program is to ensure that spark and flame producing work activities do not present an undue fire hazard to the university community.
Hot work includes any operation that produces flames, sparks or heat. Examples of hot work include but are not limited to cutting, welding, thermite welding, brazing, soldering, grinding, thermal spraying, thawing pipe, installation of torch-applied roof systems or any other similar activity that has open flames or spark producing work.
All Hot Work Permit Requests and notifications must be submitted 24-hours before the start of Hot Work activities, except for emergencies.
