Updated ASME B30.16 Revision 2017 Now Available

The B30.16 Overhead Underhung and Stationary Hoists 2017 edition is now available.  Formerly titled Overhead Hoists (Underhung).  In this edition, revisions were made to reflect current technology and terminology.  Included now are overhead underhung and stationary hoists and includes information about personnel competence.  Also included are now pitch diameter requirements for sheaves and drums, inspection requirements, and rigger and signalperson responsibilities.  Chapter 16-0 (Scope, Definitions, Personnel, Competence, and Reference) has been overhauled in its entirety.

The ASME safety codes and standards are intended to enhance public safety.  They are accredited as meeting the criteria of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).  Revisions result from committee consideration of factors such as technological advances, new data and changing environmental and industry needs.  Revisions do not imply that previous editions were inadequate.

The ITI Bookstore maintains updated volumes of the ASME B30 Standards, providing current relevant information to its customers.  Visit our ASME Standards tab under the Books tab to see the current listing, or click here to view ASME B30.16 Overhead Underhung and Stationary Hoists.
