WJTA Releases Vacuum Operator Handbook

The WJTA's popular industrial vacuum equipment operations reference, the Recommended Practices for the Use of Industrial Vacuum Equipment, is available now as a pocket sized version for ease of reference in the field or on the road.

The "Vacuum Operator Blue Book" contains identical text and imagery as the Recommended Practices manual (Third Edition, October 2018), but is sized to 3-7/8" by 5-7/8" (9.8 x 14.8 cm) and is 106 pages in length.

Topics include injury potential, seeking medical attention, damage, explosion, types of trucks, hydro- and pneumatic-excavation, pre-job preparations, grounding/bonding, working safely, job completion, loading/off-loading flammables and combustibles, equipment maintenance, regulations and certifications, and more.

The new handbook is priced at $5 each for members ($10 for non-members) for quantities up to 49 units, or $4 member/$8 non-member for quantities of 50 units or more. Contact the WJTA office for bulk orders of 500 or more handbooks.

The blue book can be purchased through the online store at or by contacting the WJTA office at 314-241-1445.
