More information about the OSHA Fire Watch

Fire watch personnel are mandated by OSHA. They literally watch for fire in areas of hot work. These areas of hot work include those where workers weld and cut with torches.

The main job for fire watch personnel is to sound the alarm if there is an emergency so that firefighters can be brought in. They may attempt to control the fire but their primary role is not to fight the flames, but to simply alert professionals so that they can come in and take care of it. A fire watch position is not permitted to perform any other duties.

The delegate will be required to score a minimum competency of 75% on a written exam.
The delegate will also be required to complete a practical exercise by extinguishing a fire using a dry chemical extinguishing agent.
