BFPA Technical Standards work second to none

21 March, 2019

New position paper on re-ending hose

06 December, 2018

BFPA has published a new position paper PP1 “Hose Re-Ending” on the BFPA website under “Technical Articles”. The paper essentially explains BFPA’s very clear position which is: “The BFPA’s position is that hose(s) shall not be re-ended”. The view of BFPA‘s industry experts, backed up by technical standards in the field, is that “it isimpossible to know whether an original hose has been stretched, crushed, degraded by sunlight or damaged by chemicals, the hose assembly safety, therefore, cannot be guaranteed if a new end is fitted on a used hose.” To read the full position paper, please visit www.bfpa.co.uk/technical/technical-articles

BFPA builds on social media platforms

26 October, 2018

Earlier this year BFPA committed to more engagement on social media and the latest numbers indicate it has been very worthwhrthwhile. For several years the BFPA had a group on LinkedIn but hadn’t really made the most of its company page; that has all changed now and we are regularly posting on LinkedIn in both areas and are pleased to say that our engagement levels and followers have increased hugely since the beginning of the year. In January we also launched our two new Facebook pages for BFPA: BFPA Official and BFPA Training Academy which are also gathering pace and growing well. We had always been active on twitter but have stepped up efforts with our two company twitter accounts: BFPA Official and BFPA Training Academy which has paid off too.
