A frequent reason for entering confined spaces is to conduct "hot work"– welding, cutting, grinding, etc. But very few regulations or guidebooks address the many fire and explosion hazards that may be present in these operations.

Fortunately, Martin H. Finkel, a Certified Industrial Hygienist and Certified Marine Chemist, has written Guidelines for Hot Work in Confined Spaces. Using a basic, easy-to-follow approach, Finkel shows the safety professional and industrial hygienist how to ensure that hot work is conducted safely in potentially hazardous environments.

This guidebook presents proven, effective techniques for recognizing and correcting the hazards that occur in these situations. Hazards that may be hidden from the casual observer are revealed, so that those tasked with approving welding, cutting, drilling and other hot work operations in confined areas can do so with confidence.

This new printing has been updated to include a change in the standard, new case studies, an additional appendix, and new references.

"The book outlines a systematic approach to recognizing, evaluating and controlling confined space hazards during hot work operations. It offers practical examples of confined space hot work incidents where the necessary approach was lacking, and offers suggestions to avoid these incidents."

- Lamar Labauve CMC, Chief Technical Advisor, NFPA Confined Space Training
