ASME updates

Below are a few ASME updates that we thought you might find helpful:

  • On Jan 18, 2011, ASME B30.9-2010  Slings became available for the public to purchase.  The latest revision covers safe care along with the use and inspection of alloy chains, synthetic slings, wire rope and metal mesh slings.
  • Past and current revisions of any B30 standards are now making training mandatory.  ASME B30.9-2010 made training mandatory in their 2006 edition, well before OSHA mandated rigging training for construction. This is also stated in ASME B30.26-2015 Rigging Hardware which was released on October 7, 2015.
  • ASME B30.11- 2010  Monorails and Underhung Cranes released last April 2010 added Chapter 11-4 Maintenance Training.  Anyone that makes adjustments or repairs to this equipment must be trained.
  • It is important to keep current with the latest standards.  On May 31, 2011,  ASME issued the latest revision of B30.2-2011 Overhead and Gantry Cranes .

Should you have any questions about any of the above changes, feel free to leave us comments.  Our CMCO training group can help your company become familiar with and up-to-date on the latest standards.
