Hot work permits for public areas in the port of Rauma are issued and controlled by Port of Rauma. Companies operating in the port area are responsible for granting permits for areas under their administration. Persons carrying out hot work on temporary hot work locations are required to hold a valid hot work card issued by the Finnish National Rescue Association (SPEK) or a hot work card issued in some other Nordic country. If hot work is to be carried out in areas that involve an increased risk of fire or explosion, such as the storage field for flammable materials in the port, the Satakunta Rescue Services shall be contacted, tel. +358(0)2621 1500, before work is started. The port traffic supervisors can provide more information about the permits and where they can be obtained, tel. +358 (0)500 597 579.
