In his 2 terms on the WJTA-IMCA board, they have made some significant advances in expanding the services they offer their membership to include the industrial vacuuming industry as well as the water blasting industry.

“I see the WJTA-IMCA becoming even more progressive in defining and sharing industry standards and best practices in the water blasting and industrial vacuum industries. I also see this organization’s role expanding its scope to additional adjacent industries in which WJTA-IMCA members also do business”, he explained to EWJI.

From his point of view, “this defining and sharing of best practices will help improve the safety of its members’ industry as well as reduce the operating costs such as legal, insurance, and training. The WJTA-IMCA can also provide operational, training and safety guidelines for smaller companies who do not have the size or staff to ensure that their training and safety practices allows their workers operate in the safest work environment possible”.

Because of his experience, his presence in the EWJI Annual Convention 2017 will be very useful for the Institute without a doubt.
