Security professions-Fire guards/hot work guards

A hot work watch supervises people who carry out work with fire, mainly in the (petro)chemical industry. He or she monitors whether the requirements of the hot work permit are met and checks that the correct personal protective equipment is worn. During work, the hot work watch monitors the employees in or outside the confined space. He or she is also responsible for checking permits, procedures and the evacuation plan.

If a fire breaks out during the work, a hot work watch will know how to communicate quickly and how to call in the emergency services. In addition, a hot work watch can extinguish the fire with small extinguishing agents until the emergency services arrive and, if necessary, provide first aid until the emergency services arrive.
