Webinar – Too Hot to Handle – a cautionary tale about Hot Works Conditions

28 March 2024
By Alex Rosenfield


Hot Works Conditions are a staple of contractors’ public liability policies. They require certain precautions to be taken before, during and after the carrying out of Hot Work activities, each of which are designed to reduce the risk of a fire breaking out.

The language and requirements of Hot Works Conditions vary across the market, and difficult questions often arise as to whether a particular activity engages the precautions, the meaning of “combustible”, and whether the precautions are even capable of being satisfied.
