About the Permit Authorized Individual (PAI) Course
A Permit Authorizing Individual (PAI) inspects hot work sites prior to the start of hot work operations using the checklist found on the Hot Work Permit Form. When a fire watch is required, the PAI will designate an employee to serve as Fire Watch. Once all requirements on the forms have been satisfied and the form is signed by a PAI, the document becomes a Hot Work Permit and must be posted in the area where hot work is to be performed.
