ASME 30.30-1.8.1 (b) states that:

“Running rope in service shall be visually inspected daily, unless a qualified person determines it should be performed more frequently. The visual inspection shall consist of observation of all rope that can reasonably be expected to be in use during the day’s operations. The inspector should focus on discovering gross damage that may be an immediate hazard.”

According to the B30.30 Standard, inspectors are looking for:

  • Distortion of rope structure
  • Broken wires
  • Corrosion
  • Gross damage or deterioration of the end connections
  • Evidence of heat, electrical, or lightning damage, or localized change in lubrication condition
