About Hot Works Training

Workers undertaking hot work activities need to be aware of the risks they face, the measures that have been put in place to protect them and their role in ensuring the health and safety of themselves and others.

This course provides workers involved in hot works with the relevant practical guidelines for safety practices to reduce workplace accidents and maintain their safety.

Why Is Hot Work Training Important?

Work involving applications of heat can cause severe damage to the health of those conducting hot work operations. According to CE Safety, a health and safety training organisation, there were 309 fires in buildings undergoing renovations in 2021, some 16% of which were caused by hot works accidents.

Hot work fires cost millions of pounds in total losses over the past decade, making it essential for employers to adequately educate and train their workers undertaking such work activities.
