Hot work and Impairment Permit Requests
Instruction: Please read the instructions carefully before submitting your request. Permit requests can be submitted through the Survey123 form below.
Requests must be submitted by the SUNY Project Manager, Director/Associate Director of Facility Operations, or the department chair. Those submitting permit requests must be knowledgable about the following SUNY New Paltz programs and policies:
Any scheduled shutdowns/hot work cannot begin without approval from the Office of Emergency Management to ensure compliance with building codes, reduce hazards associated with hot work, and avoid accidental activation of the fire alarm system. Person(s) performing hot work must await confirmation that necessary impairments are in place prior to work starting each day.
Normal hours for shutdowns are Monday to Friday, non-holidays, between 8:00 AM and 3:45 PM. Any requests outside of these core hours will still be considered, but are dependent on staff availability. Any requests outside of the core hours must document reasons for the requested hours in the "additional comments” section of the form. Over time fees may be charged to the department/contractor for any requests outside of core hours.
Additional instructions include:
After reviewing these instructions, requesters can utilize the Hot work and Fire Alarm Shutdown Request Form to notify Emergency Management officials of upcoming work.
