Boston Hot Work Safety Program

As this newsletter reported last month, the City of Boston is rolling out a new Hot Work Safety Program in response to the high profile Back Bay brownstone fire in 2014.  Starting in 2017, the City of Boston will require that in order to receive a permit to do hot work, all employees will have to complete a course designed by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA).

According to the Boston Fire Prevention Code, hot work includes:

  • Welding and allied processes
  • Heat treating
  • Grinding
  • Thawing pipes
  • Powder-driven fasteners
  • Hot Riveting
  • Torch-applied roofing
  • Any similar applications producing or using sparks, flame or heat.

The Boston Hot Work Safety Certificate Program will consist of a 3 hour course creating awareness of fire safety issues and educating workers on regulations and standards.  It will culminate in a 20 question multiple choice test which must be passed by all employees.  The cost of the course will be $25 per employee.

The Hot Work Safety Certificate Program is being rolled out by each of the local union training schools which will offer the classes to members throughout the fall.  For those unable to attend a union-led training session, there will also be classes offered at Madison Park Technical Vocational School in Boston most Tuesdays and Thursdays.

For more information on class times and requirements, contact your union training director or the Association office.
