Keeping Cool on Hot Works

Thermal imaging cameras are used to enhance the hot works process on all timber frame projects, and soon to be all projects for Morgan Sindall Construction’s east division.

Hot works within timber framed buildings will be eliminated where possible, but there are occasions when this is not possible. Training is given to operatives at induction with regards to the use of these, and areas of possible concern highlighted within the hot works permit. This is discussed at the daily briefings.

Monitoring is undertaken by the operatives during the hot works process and also before any breaks or leaving of the area. The four stage permit sign off is also completed using a visual inspection of the area at agreed intervals, and also with the cameras to ensure there are no hot spots in enclosed areas.

The permit highlights working areas and voids or rooms backing onto the areas. The permit now highlights these areas and ensures checks are documented and information is delivered to the Site Manger well before the end of the working day.
