March 2022 CCPS Safety Beacon - Hot Work
The March 2022 CCPS Safety Beacon includes an illustrative case study regarding hot work hazards. Electrical tools (or even some hand tools) produce localized ignition hazards either from heat or from sparks from the motor brushes. As battery-powered tools become more powerful and more common, they represent an increasing ignition hazard. Please consider sharing the one-page document with your coworkers and contractors.
