PetroHab™, LLC manufactures, leases and maintains the Oil & Gas industry’s premiere Hot Work Safety Enclosures, also known as “Pressurized Welding Enclosures” or “habitats” . PetroHab’s portable, modular, and fire retardant habitats are utilized in a variety of industrial settings where Hot Work containment is required and/or desired in order to mitigate against risks associated with Hot Work related activities. PetroHab™ utilizes a proprietary patent pending “Quadra-Lock®” technology to securely assemble the panels that make up its habitats. Hot Work includes operations that can produce flames or sparks that can result from the following:
Since sparks and molten materials from Hot Work can be scattered more than 35 feet during welding, cutting, and grinding activities, Hot Work is a leading cause of industrial fires, consistently ranking in the top five causes of fires across all industries. As such, Safety Professionals are especially challenged to ensure the health and safety of workers conducting the Hot Work. Aside from the concerns relating to the health and safety of workers, companies such as those related to the Oil & Gas Industry, are especially sensitive to the legal ramifications relating to the loss of humans lives and the destruction and/or replacement of a company’s assets.
