Only employees who have been trained in this program can perform hot work and/or be a fire watch. Outside contractors performing hot work at College properties may follow their own program, but must complete a Hampshire College hot work permit. A fire watch is required for all hot work.
While the hot work is being performed, the hot work permit will be kept at the work site and made available to all employees performing the work and the fire watch. After completion of the work and the post-work fire watch, the "work completion certification" section of the hot work permit will be completed and reviewed by the supervisor.
Completed hot work permits will be maintained in a separate program file in the environmental health and safety office. All hot work permits and any other program records will be kept for at least one year after their annual review.
The Hampshire College hot work program will be reviewed on an annual basis by the facilities and grounds director and environmental health and safety. The review will include:
