What is Hot Work Passport

Reducing Risk in the Construction Sector

Hot work passport is a standard to be reached by anyone who carries out any hot works as part of their job or who works at a supervisorial or managerial level involving any hot works. Activities involving hot works pose a significant risk of fire. Some published data for the ten years until 2008 show that in excess of £70 million pounds worth of damage was caused fires resulting from hot work carried out. The introduction of the passport was largely in response to this significant cost to business and is aimed at minimising the cost to businesses.

A candidate who holds the hot work passport shows that the individual concerned has shown knowledge and understanding of the significant risks associated with hot works and will provide the individual with a recognised qualification for work in the construction sector.

The hot work passport will become increasingly accepted as a requirement, for operatives through to senior managers (individuals and business’s) if they are undertaking hot work for clients in the construction sector.
