Dedicated to promoting safety in the industry, WJTA has, throughout its history, continued its push for safe working practices. Since 1985, WJTA has published a recommended practices manual for operating waterjetting equipment, and in 2007 introduced a recommended practices manual for operating industrial vacuum equipment.


The companion videos were subsequently introduced to complement the manuals for


training and education. Under the guidance of special committees consisting of contractors, manufacturers, educators, researchers, consultants, and plant and asset owners, the manuals are constantly being updated with new information and guidelines.
