The Guide about health and safety in water jetting, produced by the European Water Jetting Institute, with the contributions and collaboration of the members of the EWJI homonymous working group, has two main objectives.

On one hand, produce a basic and descriptive publication. And, on the other hand, give a general overview of what the water jetting is, roles and responsibilities of people involved, working methods, use and maintenance of the equipment, and handle of hazardous waste risks.

It is intended to serve as a reference document for professionals linked to this industry, especially contractors and asset owners performing or contracting services using high-pressure water.
