All Iowa State University employees who perform or supervise hot work must complete Hot Work Permit Training. The Iowa State University Hot Work Permit Program was developed in accordance with OSHA regulations and NFPA standards with the goal of preventing hot work fires. Before hot work can be performed outside of designated hot work areas a hot work permit must first be obtained. Hot work permits can be obtained from Permit Authorizing Individuals who have been designated as such by department supervisors.
Outside contractors working on the Iowa State University campus are required to have hot work safety procedures as a part of their project safety programs. Contractors working on capital projects at Iowa State University are required to follow the hot work guidelines outlined in project specifications.
