OSHA Hose Safety Whip Check CableHose Safety Whip Checks should be installed in all pressurized hose applications to keep operators and job sites safe. To prevent serious injury due to hose or coupling failure, add a Whip Check at each hose connection and from equipment / compressor to the hose. Whip checks should be installed in the fully extended position (no slack) for proper safety assurance. Spring-loaded loops easily adjust to slip over the couplings for a firm grip on the hose.  Also known as whip arrestors or hose choker cables, these cables are a necessity for pneumatic supply hose service.
