Risk with Pneumatic Hose Couplings

Graham Marshall - Thursday, April 11, 2013

Pneumatic hose couplings are easily miss-used when they are incorrectly installed with no safety-pin and no hose-restraints ("whip check").

In Australia, NOPSEMA, the offshore safety regulator has issued a safety alert to highlight the risk, having noticed many instances where hoses have been incorrectly installed.

If hoses are not correctly installed, there is a very real danger of the hose de-coupling and whipping or striking someone.

See the safety alert below for further information.
