The 2013 NAHAD Annual Meeting & Convention is well under way. It attracts delegates from both hose and accessory manufacturers and distibutors. It includes three days of scheduled events including UID the University of Industrial Distribution. This is an intense one-day program of three course tracts to educate and inform sellers of hose and accessories on best business practices.
One of the many features of the National Association of Hose and Accessories Distribution, NAHAD, is their comittment to safety. They just released a book on Hose Safety and we will be covering that more in H&P. You can get more information by going to their website and find the section on Safety.
If you think about it, this is a topic that is of interest to all system designers, machine builders, and maintenance specialists for hydraulic systems. Having safety guidelines can only help these professionals to produce safer machinery and equipment.
I commend NAHAD for their efforts along these lines and we will be reviewing the book further for the benifit of our audience. Again, I invite you to visit the NAHAD website for all of the services that they offer.
