Celebrate Hose Safety Awareness Week (HSAW)
A Week of Hose Safety to Promote Everyday Best Practices
September 10–16, 2023
NAHAD is committed to ensuring that all hose manufacturers and distributors have the tools they need to promote hose safety with their teams and end-users. NAHAD, through the Hose Safety Institute (HSI) provides education and training through a series of prescribed best practices, educational webinars, downloadable resources, and hands-on instruction throughout the year.
In recognition of these efforts and to promote the importance of hose safety essentials, NAHAD has designated the week of September 10–16, 2023 Hose Safety Awareness Week. This is a week where members can come together in a concentrated way to highlight the actionable safety approaches implemented within their daily business operations to keep staff and customers safe.
“In my experience, an improperly applied or mis-assembled hose can be very common reasons for a piece of equipment being down or, more importantly, for serious injuries. Unfortunately, it is all too often one of the most under scrutinized product categories on a given piece of equipment. It is a critical component for end users and NAHAD member customers to pay attention to and be sure their suppliers are qualified and ideally HSI certified.
The Hose Safety Institute has established Hose Safety Awareness Week in order to put an exclamation point on this subject and provide NAHAD members with a concrete time and reason to approach their customers with purpose and helpful messaging and have those Hose Safety conversations.”
Jason Westad, President NAHAD (2022-2023)
