The Hot Work Program has been developed to prevent fires resulting from temporary operations that produce heat, sparks, hot slag or open flames. Hot work includes brazing, cutting, grinding, soldering, thawing pipes, torch-applied roofing, welding, and any other work involving a flame or producing sparks. Environmental Health and Safety has established an authorization program, in accordance with the New York City Fire Code, for all employees and contractors who perform or supervise hot work activities in any building or structure, on building roofs, or on building setbacks.
The EHS Hot Work Program Manual provides information regarding proper hot work practices.
