“Those ‘quick’ jobs, if done in prohibited or unprepared hot work areas, can result in devastating fires, explosions, injuries, and loss of life,” said Michelle Graveen, workplace safety editor at J.

Hot Work: Safety Operations Training features real-world industry professionals who drive home the dangers of hot work and the importance of using safe work practices.
