  • Maintaining the conditions and requirements stated on the safety permit.
  • Inspecting the entire work area to look for potential release of flammable vapors or liquids before, during, and at the end of each shift.
  • Being prepared to operate fire extinguishers, hydrants, fixed monitors, and hose carts anytime.
  • Never leaving the job site while the work is being done.
