What is the ASME B30 Safety Standard for Cranes, Hoists, and Rigging?

A look at each volume of the ASME B30 Safety Standards as they apply to material handling equipment, cranes, hoists, rigging equipment, and below-the-hook lifting devices.

If you work in a job that utilizes a crane, hoist, derrick, or cableway to lift and move material, you’re operating under rules and regulation that likely originated from the ASME B30 Safety Standard.


The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) is a professional association and leading international developer of codes and standards associated with the art, science, and practice of mechanical engineering. ASME membership is comprised of engineers, scientists, government officials, and others who voluntarily contribute their technical expertise.


ASME standards and safety codes are intended to enhance public safety and offer best practices and applicable regulations within specific industries and jurisdictions. ASME standards are accredited as meeting the criteria of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). ASME B30 is identified as the “Safety Standard for Cableways, Cranes, Derricks, Hoists, Hooks, Jacks, and Slings.” Every couple of years, the B30 Committee reviews, revises, and amends their existing standards and releases a new edition. The Committee revises the standards based on numerous considerations, including:


  • Technological advances
  • New data
  • Changing environmental and industry needs

Today, ASME B30 exists as a suite of American National Standards with 30 unique volumes related to the design, installation, operation, inspection, and maintenance of different types of equipment utilized in construction processes.


The guidelines set forth by the experts on the B30 committee and sub-committees can help employers, manufacturers, end-users, and contractors keep themselves out of harm’s way and improve the safety performance and compliance of lifting and rigging equipment.


In this article, we’ll take a look at each volume of the ASME B30 Safety Standards as they apply to material handling equipment, cranes, hoists, rigging equipment, and below-the-hook lifting devices.
