Hot work is defined as burning, welding or similar spark-producing operations that can ignite fires or explosions. Hot work accidents occur throughout many industries in the U.S. These include food processing, pulp and paper manufacturing, oil production, fuel storage and waste treatment. The Chemical Safety Board’s presenter discusses these issues. Frequent deaths and serious injuries continue even though the hazards of hot work are well established, and regulatory and good-practice guidance exist.
