ASME has been defining crane safety since 1916.
B30.10 includes provisions that apply to hooks used for lifting and load handling purposes, in conjunction with equipment described in other volumes of the B30 Standard. Hooks supporting a load in the base (bowl/saddle or pin hole) of the hook, are covered in Chapter 10-1. Hooks that may be loaded in other than the base (bowl/saddle or pin hole)are covered in Chapter 10-2.
This safety standard offers comprehensive solutions applying to the fabrication, attachment, use, inspection, and maintenance of this equipment.
B30.10 is to be used in conjunction with equipment described in other volumes of the ASME B30 series of safety standards.
Careful application of B30 safety standards will help users to comply with applicable regulations within their jurisdictions, while achieving the operational and safety benefits to be gained from the many industry best-practices detailed in these volumes.
Intended for manufacturers, owners, employers, users and others concerned with the specification, buying, maintenance, training and safe use of slings and hooks with B30 equipment, plus all potential governing entities.
