Keeping the equipment clean in this regard is paramount importance.
If it’s not clean, you can’t see if there’s any problems with hoses – wear and tear.
And the one thing to remember, while I talk about that hose, is if you crimp this
hose and it stays in this configuration that means that you’ve undermined the
integrity of the wall braiding of the hose and the hose is deemed dangerous and she’ll be tagged out.
So, if you bend this hose or pull on it and crimp the hose, that hose is no longer deemed safe.
So, it must be tagged out removed and replaced .
