NAHAD recently rolled out its all new web site at www.NAHAD.org, which also incorporates the HSI program information at www.HoseSafetyInstitute.org. The HSI site contains open access to the seven Hose Assembly Guidelines Specification Guidelines, industry Best Practices and a complete Glossary of Terms, along with a variety of training, marketing and information resources available to Institute Members only. Print versions of the Specification Guides are also available for purchase on the site.

“Eaton has been a long-standing manufacturer member of NAHAD and many of Eaton’s distributors have been active members in the association for many years,” stated NAHAD Executive V.P., Joseph Thompson. “We hope that our presence at the 2011 EDM will help many more Eaton distributors to learn how NAHAD and Institute membership can offer powerful business value to their companies, resulting in more business in the months and years to come.”
