Fire Watch


This course is taught exclusively by our Authorized Training Providers.

Oil and gas workers often work near flammable substances, and sometimes that work requires welding or other operations posing fire hazards. If not managed properly, the risk of an accident and injury under these conditions can be severe.

This course covers the duties of the Fire Watch position who oversees work posing a fire risk. Participants will learn the roles and responsibilities of a Fire Watch before, during and after hot work including reviewing permits, hazard identification, communication and emergency response.
