Why You Need To Hire a Hot Work Guard

Hot work watch helps keep vulnerable property, equipment, and employees safe from dangerous fire hazards. Typically, hot work guards are deployed in an area where hot work (welding etc) is taking place, where a fire alarm or sprinkler system is malfunctioning or down, or in the wake of a natural disaster that caused a power outage. They act as an extra safety measure to keep valuable capital, infrastructure, and any people on the premise out of harm’s way due to an unforeseen fire.

While only a temporary solution during the interim that fire systems are not working properly, hot work guards are extremely important because at these times, property is at extremely high-risk for ignition. Whether the risk is the type of work being performed or the lack of other safety measures, a hot work watch company can serve as peace of mind that the things that are most important will be out of harm’s way.

Fires do not discriminate. Tragic fire accidents can cause complete losses of warehouses, businesses, factories, apartment buildings, or hotels. Choosing the right fireguard company is an important component of proactive crisis management for any commercial structure. Fast Guard Service Hot Work Guards provides reliable, expert-level fire watch guards to ensure fire won’t damage or destroy any property.

Fire Watch for Hot Work

Hot work includes construction processes such as welding, soldering, brazing, riveting, or flame cutting. The US Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration outlines the official safety requirements for these kinds of hot work, which include fire watch guards in some cases. At Fast Guard Service, LLC, all our fire watch guards are fully OSHA-certified to ensure that you get the credible and reliable fire watch services your business or property needs.

As stated by OSHA’s general requirements for welding, cutting, and brazing, fire watchers are required in locations where there is welding or cutting and any of the following circumstances are present:
• A minor fire may develop
• Combustible material is within 35 ft. of work performance
• Openings within that 35-ft radius expose nearby combustible material
• Combustible materials located on opposite side of metal separators such as partitions, walls, or ceilings could likely ignite by result of radiation or conduction

Usually, before a hot work permit is issued, an outline of fire watch needs is provided in the contract. The area must be inspected for common fire culprits such as dirty rags, trash, fuel sources, and any flammable liquids.

When you call Fast Guard Service, we will dispatch an OSHA-certified guard to provide hot work guarding services. The fire watch guard will monitor all exposed areas for possible fire. They will know how to sound alarms immediately if fire is detected. Their only duty is monitoring for fire, so as to ensure full focus on maintaining safety. Their full surveillance continues on for 30 minutes after hot work is completed, to allow all equipment and materials to cool down completely.

Fire Watch During Malfunctioning or Down Fire Detection Systems

It’s crucial to maintain a constant fire detection system. Ideally, this means properly working sprinkler systems, fire and smoke detectors, fire extinguishing systems, and water supplies. Sometimes, one or all these aspects of the system may be malfunctioning, compromised or altogether not working. To provide the necessary fire guard services during these system-down times, Fast Guard Services has the professional and fully certified guards you need.

At times, impairments may be planned maintenance periods that must regularly occur. Examples of scheduled impairments include building renovations or system updates. Unplanned impairments can also occur due to damage, outdated infrastructure, electrical faultiness, or a leak. Depending on what the issue is and what caused it, it may be a lengthy repair time, creating an interim of impairment that puts the entire location at risk. During these vulnerable periods of time, there are lives, equipment, and property at stake that must be protected from any threat of fire or explosion.

While the proper maintenance repairs are made to the fire detection system, a human detection system is the next best thing to keep everyone and everything on site safe. Since they are inevitable events whether planned or unplanned, it’s a good idea to have a chosen company for fire watch guards on hand so that backup is just one call away. A Fast Guard Service fire watch guard can act as that physical fire detection system, thoroughly maintaining safe conditions and ensuring the entire area is not under immediate threat.

One fire guard can make the difference between a catastrophe and a minor accident. Keeping them around the clock during the period of impairment is the best defense against potentially disastrous incidents. As soon as a faulty fire detection system is noticed, Fast Guard Service is able to immediately dispatch licensed fire watch guards to the scene. Fast Guard Service’s fire watch guards will also remain on location until the full functions of the fire detection system are operational and the entire system has been inspected and certified by the Fire Marshall.
