The second edition of the WaterJet Technology Association’s widely used waterjetting safety video, Industry Best Practices for Waterjetting, is now available.

The video is a visual companion to the association’s safety manual, Industry Best Practices for the Use of High Pressure Waterjetting Equipment (also known as the “Orange Book” and formerly published as the Recommended Practices for the Use of High Pressure Waterjetting Equipment).

The 30-minute safety video is a valuable resource for new-employee orientation or refresher training and covers both manual and robotic waterjetting systems and applications. Topics include: 

  • Waterjet systems and general components
  • Pressure and flow
  • General safety
  • Confined spaces
  • Protective gear
  • Team coordination
  • System setup
  • Personal responsibility and safety measures
  • Shotgunning
  • Flex lancing, rigid lancing, moleing
  • Dump valve setup and troubleshooting
  • Automated and robotic equipment

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.
