Cutting and Welding
CUTTING & WELDING PROCEDURES
ALL cutting and welding on the St. George Campus must be approved by Fire Prevention prior to commencement of work. Hot Work Permits are issued on a ‘per job’ basis, with the exception of U of T personnel carrying out routine maintenance in designated ‘Permanent Permit’ areas. The permit process helps to reduce the risk of fire, as well as the chance of nuisance fire alarms that result from smoke generated.
Hot Work Permits can be arranged by U of T personnel (Project Managers or Property Managers must act for their contractors), by calling Fire Prevention at Local 8-5299/8-5298,6-3007/6-8424 . A minimum of 24 hours’ notice is required, prior to the commencement of work.
