EWJI Forum 2019 address best practices for the assessment and accreditation

14/03/2019

EWJI Forum 2019 included a useful workshop, named “Competency of contractors: assessment, safety, and accreditation”, to share the best practices of existing models for the assessment and accreditation of water jetting contractors.

The speaker and panelists who participated in the workshop (Mr. Stuart Harwood, SC3; Mr. Hans Borgt, DOW CONSTRUCTION CHEMICALS, and Mr. Mike Watson,  TUBE TECH) focused on the industrial cleaning applications, but the outline of the exchange of ideas was applicable to other applications of water jetting (construction, municipal cleaning and surface preparation).

Both panelists and attendees discussed the creation of a model/reference system to allow the accreditation of the contractors and its main benefits and challenges.

The goal of this subject is to focus on the laying of the basis for the creation of a model/reference system to allow the accreditation of the contractors, which can be recognized at international level by asset owners, main contractors, and other organizations related with the industry.
