Fire Watch Attendants

For hot work projects, we can offer a fire watch attendant who is tasked with preventing fires and eliminating potential fires at the spark stage. Our attendants understand how different types of extinguishers interact with different types of fires and their various classifications and behaviours, and are trained in the safe operation of fire extinguishers. Their duties include:

 

  • Inspection of worksite
  • Development of a site-specific JHA & implementing controls
  • Set-up & dismantling of fire suppression system
  • Pre-soak before the commencement of hot work
  • Monitoring during hot work
