Why do I need a certificate?
Insurance companies have introduced requirements for certification for all persons carrying out hot work on a provisional workplace. If the workplace is not fixed and does not have special facilities for hot work, then it is considered a provisional workplace. If hot work is not executed according to the prevailing safety regulations and an injury or damage occurs you will get reduction in an insurance settlement.
Many fires each year are caused by carelessness and negligence when performing hot work. If you are involved with hot work, you are obliged to have insight into the fire hazard related to hot work and to execute the work in such a way that fire does not occur. Insurance companies require workers who perform hot work on a provisional workplace to have a hot work certificate. The certification scheme is administered by the Norwegian Fire Protection Association (Norsk brannvernforening).
