Hot Work Safety Program
December 6, 2016 @ 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Sheet Metal Workers Local 17 and SMACNA Boston are working with the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), the Boston Fire Department, the Inspectional Services Division (ISD) and the State Fire Marshall’s office to help certify all workers affiliated in the Sheet Metal Industry in the new required “Hot Works Certification” training.
The HOT WORKS ordinance is scheduled to go into place January 2017. All employees on the job; as well as the person that pulls the permit, must have the Hot Works Certification.
The J.A.T.C. will pay the $25 certification fee per UNION MEMBER to take the certification. If you choose to send any non-union employee, they must bring a check made payable to “NFPA” for $25. If they do not comply, they will not be allowed to take the class. SMACNA Boston will reimburse Contributing Contractor employees upon proof of payment to the NFPA.
The class size is limited to 50 participants and classes will be filled first come first serve. Class will be cancelled if less than 10 people are registered.
