Welding and cutting operations should be conducted in locations that have been specifically designated for the purpose. Other locations may be used if they have been freed of fire hazards by removal or protection of combustible materials, flammable liquids, vapors, or dust; and if suitable precautions have been taken against the re-accumulation of such materials. When welding or cutting is to be done in any location other that one specifically designated for such purpose, approval of the job and or precaution to be taken shall be obtained from the Fire Chief before operations are started. Operations or welding or cutting equipment shall have been properly instructed and qualified to operate such equipment. Instructions shall include precautions against hazards related to the operation. All welding or burning operations shall be under the supervision and control of a competent supervisor, who shall see that all regulations pertaining to welding and burning operations are complied with. All combustibles shall be relocated at least 35 feet horizontally form the work site. Where relocation is impractical, combustibles shall be protected with flameproof covers or otherwise shielded with metal or fire resistant guards or curtains. Edges of covers at the floor shall be tight to prevent sparks from going under them. This precaution is also important at overlaps where several covers are used to protect a large pile. When combustible or flammable materials are exposed to welding or cutting operations, a fire watch shall be posted in the vicinity with necessary extinguishers or water hose. Fire watches shall be posted on both sides of a deck, bulkhead, wall or ceiling being worked on when fire hazards exist on both sides. The fire watch shall remain at his station for a reasonable time (at least 30 minutes) after the job is completed to insure that there are no live sparks or smoldering fires.
