Basic training helps personnel understand the risks associated with hot work, teaches them proper safety procedures, and familiarizes them with the necessary equipment and precautions. Without this training, personnel may not be aware of the potential dangers or how to mitigate them, increasing the risk of accidents and injuries. Therefore, it is not okay for personnel to learn how to do hot work on the job without receiving basic training first.
