If you're doing any kind of work involving flames or producing heat, you are required to follow the safety procedures governing hot work. This includes soldering, brazing, cutting, welding, pipe thawing, drilling, tapping and many other activities common to construction work.

And that's not all!

Some municipalities are requiring contractors to pull hot work permits in order to perform work in their jurisdiction. In fact, as of July 18, 2018, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts made hot work certification mandatory for all workers performing hot work in any Massachusetts city or town. That means you're already subject to the new requirements.

So now what? Well, that's the easy part . . . 

Introducing the Hot Work Safety Certificate Program!

Originated by NFPA and brought to you by PHCC of Massachusetts, it's the fast, easy way to get yourself certified for hot work and steer clear of any problems with the new regulations. You'll gain a wealth of knowledge about hot work and the dangers hot work presents on the typical job site. You'll be entered into a national database maintained by NFPA and listed as currently certified for how work operations. 

Your hot work certification training isn't complicated, and you can complete it in one sitting. Just select a class from one of our many locations across Massachusetts that's convenient for you. You'll complete two hours of training with a certified PHCC instructor, and then complete a certification test. That's it! And you'll be free and clear to perform hot work in any city or town in the Commonwealth.
