Hot Work Safety

We're back with Wesley Carter, CCPSC, as part of our ongoing collaboration comparing and contrasting the PSM standard with OSHA general industry regulations.

In this episode, we cover the requirements surrounding Hot Work, any work that involves burning, welding, cutting, brazing, soldering, grinding, using fire- or spark-producing tools, or other work that produces a source of ignition.

You'll learn what the PSM standard requires for hot work, its relationship with standard 1910.252 (for the general industry), and even about what the OSHA construction standard says about hot work activities.

You'll also hear an up close and personal story about hot work and associated hazards, and then we'll walk you through 7 key lessons from the CSB to prevent worker deaths during hot work in and around tanks.

Listen to the Contractor Management episode we referenced a few times here:
