As a career-long stabilitarian, I’ve had many occasions to search for stability information, find a much needed vendor, make a few presentations, enjoy the presentations of others, and discuss best practices to make the world safe for stability. Daily workloads make the quest for stability knowledge difficult at best.
The time has come to create a place where the information or the path to the information resides, where a few clicks open guidances, reveal vendors, flip to the page of an article we need, open the calendar for this year’s travel planning, or find out what your industry colleagues have said in response to a broadcasted query. StabilityHub IS that place and we hope we’ll cross paths with you often.
You may grab a listing or a link and click off, armed with information to solve your problem, but we invite your extended participation to make this site and our profession more effective through comments and suggestions on our site as well as issues raised by other stability specialists in discussion threads that this site points to and highlights.
Stability is an inexact process that is as much art as it is science. Guidances differ across nations and regions, requirements vary between regulatory agencies, within regulatory departments and from individual to individual within a department.
That said, a variety of best practices and successful initiatives are frequently used to inform the implementation of guidelines and regulations. StabilityHub, John ONeill Enterprises LLC, PSDG, and all participants in StabilityHub take no responsibility for the accuracy and reliability of information supplied here. Those utilizing the information should verify for themselves the risks involved and exercise due caution before employing equipment, services, recommendations, and learnings gleaned from StabilityHub.
