Hot Work

Hot work includes activities that result in the release of sparks, flames, molten slag, or hot material, which has the potential to cause fires or explosions. The procedures in this program including the hot work permit process are established to assist in preventing accidental ignition of combustible and flammable materials and injury from exposure to sparks, heat, and flames. 

Anyone who conducts hot work operations at San Diego State University shall comply with the requirements documented in this program based on the California Code of Regulations Title 8, Section 4848. Information contained in the National Fire Protection Association Standard for Fire Prevention During Welding, Cutting, and Other Hot Work and the American National Standards Institute Safety in Welding, Cutting, and Allied Processes is incorporated by reference into these requirements.
