The Importance of Pre-Operational Lifting & Rigging Safety Inspections

Safety Standards and Regulations

Tanner along with Columbus McKinnon want to be sure you know the importance and understand all of the safety regulations that apply to your lifting and rigging systems. Each piece of equipment that you use in your lifting & rigging system may have different standards that apply. This may cause confusion and leave you vulnerable to citations and fines. This makes it very important to read up on all available literature to make sure you are following all required guidelines and standards.

Overview of the Most Important ASME Safety Standards

On parts and equipment where OSHA regulations do not apply, CM looks to ASME to provide them with safety standards to follow.

ASME is an organization that provides design and inspection standards for hoists and rigging products. ASME is a voluntary committee made up of industry experts. Their standards are voluntary standards updated every three years – not laws like OSHA regulations. Standards are used as guidance for safety because many of our products do not have applicable OSHA regulations.

ASME B30.16 Standard

This standard applies to under hung powered hoists, including electric and air, as well as chainfalls. This standard covers construction, marking, inspection, use, and training.

ASME B30.21 Standard

This standard applies to lever hoists, including chain, wire rope and strap hoists.

Multiple Regulations for Hoists and Full Lifting Systems

Times where it is very important to read up on your AMSE standards are when, a single hoist has multiple standards that need to be followed or when using a full lifting system. In each of these instances, whether you are an operator or inspector there are specific part of these standards you should know in detail. In any case where you may have a question about any standard, the best practice would be to check with the equipment manufacturer. In these cases Columbus McKinnon is more than happy to help! CMCO’s professional training department offers you extensive training courses to provide in depth training on these regulations.
