Our CEO and Technical Director, Mike Watson, recently joined fellow industry experts at the European Water Jetting Institute (EWJI) Forum 2019 in Brussels to share experiences and ideas and address best practices for water jetting services around the world.
Mike was invited to deliver a presentation during one of the three workshops, titled “Competency of contractors: assessment, safety, and accreditation of water jetting contractors”.
In identifying the value certified water jetting contractors offer clients, Mike explained the need to establish a global authority to ensure the same high-quality standard of equipment is offered and personnel training standards are provided, no matter what country they are operating in.
Mike also discussed the key role such a global institute would have in improving dialogue and the level of engagement between clients and contractors, enabling our profession to achieve greater benefits for both parties as well as promoting its direct contribution to wider international agendas, such as reducing clients’ waste, energy consumption and carbon emissions.
