How much can an unsafe hose cost you?

Costs associated with fire, explosions, shock, mechanical failure and injury from catastrophic failure of hose systems can be astronomical. In addition, the proper coupling of components is an important safety measure for both high and low pressure situations.

Research has identified indirect costs of injury – management time, HR time, litigation and reduced productivity – can be four times that of direct costs. The growing importance of safety, downtime, and reduction of maintenance costs now requires more disciplined hose management services. OnGuard™ Hose Management program focuses on critical hoses powering critical equipment.

We are a proud member of NAHAD (The Association of Hose and Accessories Distribution) and Hose Safety Institute. Our team has been tested to NAHAD/Hose Safety Institute guidelines for hose specification and fabrication. The guidelines have been developed to assist hose assembly distributors, manufacturers, and end-users by providing a basic set of performance factors related to the proper selection of components and recommendations for the design, fabrication, and specification of hose assemblies.

Reduce the risk of hose failures through routine hose inspections, testing and certification programs.  Our OnGuard™ hose management services include testing, tagging and traceability of your hoses from “cradle to grave”.  These proactive programs are managed by our hose experts and keep you running efficiently and safely.
