Factors which could potentially cause fire to propagate due to inadequate preparations for hot work are also addressed. These recommendations are relevant to any structure, building or area where construction, alteration or maintenance work is taking place. A suggested Hot Work Permit is included in the document and has been designed taking into account experience from fires caused by hot work.
