Arizona Department of Transportation has asked Waterblasting Technologies to put a training and licensing program in place for all water blasting contractors working on Arizona DOT roadways. If you don’t pass, you don’t blast!
You wouldn’t want a bus driver to operate without a license would you? Or the pilot of your plane to fly without a license? We feel that the operator of a 40,000 (psi) water blasting system should require a license from a manufacturer to insure safe optimal results. A Stripe Hog® is a powerful machine capable of achieving great results in runway rubber removal and roadway marking removal, and a LICENSED operator is the only person capable of maximizing those results, while doing so in a safe way.
At Waterblasting Technologies, we don’t just sell machines, we sell pavement marking and runway rubber removal success and a part of that success is our licensing program for Stripe Hog® operators. An extensive training and continuing education program allows our Stripe Hog® owners to measure the productivity of their operators, while having the peace of mind that comes with knowing the right person is operating the machine in the right way.
But our Licensing Program isn’t Stripe Hog® exclusive, it is available to operators of any water blasting equipment. We are the only manufacturer in our industry with a licensing program for water blasting equipment, which is part of the reason why the Arizona DOT has made this landmark decision that will positively impact the preservation and maintenance of their roadways.
