SIR, a safety organisation in the Netherlands and Belgium, has joined the European Water Jetting Institute (EWJI) as a new member.
The Stichting Industriële Reiniging (Industrial Cleaning Foundation - SIR) aims to promote and regulate safe working in industrial cleaning. It combines and protects these interests in the Netherlands and, since 2003, Belgium. In order to achieve the goal of working as safely as possible in industrial cleaning, SIR is active in a number of areas, with the most important being to lay down guidelines in cooperation with all the parties in the sector. The SIR sphere of activity covers high pressure cleaning, pressure vacuum cleaning, industrial chemical cleaning and respiratory protection (life support units).
The organisation also plays a role in encouraging the development of safe equipment and is involved in the development of safe working methods. SIR regularly adapts its guidelines to the latest developments in the trade. The network of committees and working groups, in which representatives from all the sectors in the trade participate, ensure that developments in the fields of activity are incorporated into regulations, training courses and examinations.
