Asset Owners

Quick Links: Program Overview | Resources and Justification Toolkit

High pressure water cleaning is one of the most effective ways to remove fouling from process equipment. Despite great progress in safety practices and hands-free automation technology, incidents and near misses continue to occur each year.

Training programs among providers of high pressure water cleaning services vary widely throughout the industry and in different regions. This creates challenges for both asset owners and contractors for the following reasons:

  • A significant portion of the industrial cleaning workforce moves between contracting companies or leaves the industry all together. This creates a need for frequent re-training of new hires on entry-level safety.
  • Without a widely adopted industry standard for training and certification, it’s challenging for contractors to develop and maintain an adequate culture of safety.
  • Asset Owners do not have a way of ensuring that contractors have acceptable levels of training to perform work on their equipment.

Why Require WJTA FT and FV Credentials

WJTA’s Industry Best Practices for the Use of High Pressure Waterjetting Equipment is one of the industry’s primary resources for operating recommendations in North America.
