Since the inception of PT Coupling, we have held strong to a belief in the highest standards of quality, integrity, and service. We are happy to report that a new tool for working toward these goals is now available for purchase from the NAHAD website: the new Hose Safety Institute Handbook.
The Association for Hose and Accessories Distribution (NAHAD) promotes the highest standards of professionalism and integrity within the hose and accessories industry, and its resources support quality, safety and reliability in hose assembly. NAHAD’s newly revised and streamlined Handbook provides a single source for hose assembly safety guidelines (formerly 5 separate sources). The comprehensive, up-to-date, one-of-a-kind Hose Safety Institute Handbook even includes new tests just released this month, January 2013.
PT Coupling is proud to have played a role in the Handbook’s development. Amy Parrish was on the Core Team, reviewing the tests and participating in the pilots; and PT Coupling continues to stay connected and contribute to the organization. We plan to promote NAHAD’s best practices by ensuring that each of our manufacturer reps own a copy of this resource, then we’re even purchasing the tests ourselves so that all of our sales reps will be fully certified.
It is vital to our mission to ensure we have the fullest possible understanding of best practices and guidelines in order to deliver the level of quality and safety our customers have come to expect.
