In January 2008 there was a fire at the Monte Carlo Resort and Casino in Paradise, Nevada. Welders at the time did not use fire protection mats, and the resulting fire caused 100 million dollars in damage, with thirteen people suffering from smoke inhalation and seventeen people suffering from minor injuries. This could have been prevented with an effective Project Safety Management Hot Work Permit Program.
Process Safety Management (PSM) is a systematic process aimed at preventing highly hazardous chemicals from being released. The Hot Work Permit Program is one of the fundamental components of occupational safety. Hot Works is geared towards any work that produces sparks or flames, and can includes welding and cutting among potential ignition sources. In this interactive online video course, safety expert Jon Wallace discusses the components of an effective Hot Work Permit program, how to implement it, and how it can prevent property damage, and loss of life. An effective Hot Works Permit Program will also help avoid OSHA violations.
