hose safety Institute Handbook

HSI Handbook CoverNow on Sale!

The new HANDBOOK for the Design & Specification of Safe Hose Assemblies is a comprehensive and powerful reference resource for employee training and recognition, as well as serving 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.”


Click the cover to view a Sample of the new Handbook. Order your copy below (Institute Members save $400 on each Handbook!)

The Handbook is 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 HANDBOOK incorporates all of the updated content from the seven NAHAD Hose Assembly Guidelines first introduced in 2005 (a comprehensive set of minimum performance recommendations for the Specification, Fabrication and Design of Industrial, Composite, Hydraulic, Corrugated Metal and Fluoropolymer hose assemblies) as well as new and expanded content, charts, graphics and photos.

New Handbook Exams & Certificates

To complement the new and expanded HANDBOOK, the Institute has revamped and updated its online exams and certificates program. The five new HANDBOOK exams complement the five online Fabrication exams. More than 4,000 certificates have been issued to individuals who have successfully passed the online Hose Assembly Guidelines exams since their initial introduction in 2005.
