"Hot work" includes cutting, brazing, welding, soldering, grinding and any other operation that involves production of spark or flame. All TWU Sparkemployees, students and outside contractors/service companies involved in the use of spark or flame-producing equipment at all TWU facilities are required to conform to the requirements of the TWU Hot Work Procedure.

The primary requirement for hot work is the completion of a Hot Work Permit and meeting all of the safety requirements listed on the permit.

Certain areas at TWU facilities are designated as "hot work" areas by Risk Management, and a permit is not required for these areas as long as the appropriate safe conditions are maintained. The currently designated hot work areas are listed below:

  • FMC Central Plant Welding Shop
  • FMC Automotive Shop
  • Sculpture Welding Shop in Fine Arts Building
  • Laboratories (approved only for use of lab type equipment such as Bunsen burners)
