On December 1, NAHAD’s Hose Safety Institute released its new HANDBOOK for the Design & Specification of Safe Hose Assemblies; the culmination of a two-year collaborative effort by scores of NAHAD member volunteers, following more than 10 years of hose assembly guideline development.
The new HANDBOOK incorporates all of the updated content from the seven NAHAD Hose Assembly Guidelines first introduced in 2005 as well as new and expanded content, charts, graphics and photos.
A comprehensive and powerful reference tool for employee training and recognition, as well as the basis for, or a complement to, a company’s Quality Manual, the new HANDBOOK provides the perfect marketing tool for distribution sales professionals, allowing them to have “intelligent discussions with customers, centered around safety, quality and reliability, and not about price.”
To complement the new and expanded HANDBOOK, the Institute has revamped and updated its online exams and certificates program, set to roll out on January 1. Scores of Institute members are currently participating in pilot testing the five new exams. More than 3,000 certificates have been issued to individuals who have successfully passed the online Hose Assembly Guidelines exams since their initial introduction in 2005.
