The process of Hot work permit!

In order to ensure a safe working environment, it is important to implement a permit-based system software that enforces safety rules on workers. 

“A person who wants to perform hot work should obtain a hot work permit from his or her project manager or the relevant department. Whenever two or more subcontractors perform hot work on one project, each of them should obtain their own hot work permit. Employees should fully describe the scope of the hot work, its location, and its nature in the hot work permit form.

The responsible department will approve or reject the permit. A specific permit number will be assigned.

With a permit on site for the duration of the job, the employee can proceed with hot work. Worker precautions and steps can be found in the hot work permit checklist.

The completed permit needs to be submitted to the project manager once the work is completed.”
