She highlights that there have been some important changes to the "Orange Book," such as an update to the recommended practices for high-pressure waterjetting to include some of the new automation techniques.

In addition, Siggins says the WJTA-IMCA is partnering with the Houston Area Safety Council to develop hands-on high-pressure waterblasting and vacuum truck training.

“We’re also developing stronger relationships with end-users and plant owners, asking for their participation in forming better safety standards and developing more productive and efficient ways to clean,” she says.
