Version 1.2 of the Hose Safety Institute Handbook is available. It includes new copies that may be purchased on the NAHAD website and an update pack for any existing copies.
This version provides a comprehensive set of minimum performance recommendations for the specification and design of industrial, composite, hydraulic, corrugated metal and fluoropolymer hose assemblies, as well as ducting and custom made hose. It ensures hose assembly safety, quality and reliability.
The handbook serves as a study guide for five different online exams with certificates issued upon successful completion of each exam.
Previous versions of the handbook are no longer valid and not supported by the Institute. Updated fabrication guides have also been posted to the Hose Safety Institute website and a free online version is available to all members.
