Cri Hooks, Jacks, and Slings has been developed under the procedures accredited, by. the ‘American National Standards Institute (formerly the United States of America Standards Institute. This Standard had its beginaing in Deceinber 1916 when an eight-page Code of Safety Standards for Cranes, prepared by an ASME Committee on the Protection of Industrial Workers. was presented to the annual meeting of the ASME. Meetings and discussions regarding safety on cranes, derricks, and hy 1920-10 1925, involving the ASME Safety Code Correlating Committee, the, Association ‘of tron and Sicel Electrical Enginacrs, the American Museum of Safety. the American Engineering Standards Committee (later changed to American Standards Association and subsequently'to the USA Standards lasttute), Department of Labor — State of New Jersey, Department of Labor and Industry — State of Pennsylvania, and the Locomotive Crane Manufacturers Association. On June 11, 1925, the American Engineering Standards Committee approved the ASME Safety Code Correlating Committee's recommendation and authorized the project with the U.S. Department of the Navy. Bureau of Yards and Docks, and ASME 5 sponsors. Io March 1926. invitations were issued to 50 organizations to appoint representatives 10 2 Sectional Committes.

Derricks. and Hoists, ‘ASA B30.2-1943, was created from the eight-page document referred to in the fist paragraph, ‘This document was reaffirmed in 1952 and widely accepted as 2 safety standard. Due to changes in design. advancement in techniques. and, general interest of labor and industry in safety. the Sectional Committee. under the joint sponsorship of ASME and the Naval Facilities Engineering Command, U.S. Department of thé Navy. was reorganized as an American National Standards Committee oa January 31, 1962, with 39. members representing 27 rational organizations. “The format of the previous code was changed so that separste volumes (each complete as to construction und installation; inspection, testing. ‘and maintenance: and operation) ‘would cover the different types of equipment included in the'scope of B30. “in. 1982, the Committee was reorganized ax an Accredited” Organization Committee, operating under procedures developed by ASME and accredited by the American National Standards Institute. “This Standard presents a coordinated set of rules that may serve as a guide to government land other regulatory bodies and muniipal authorities responsible for the guarding. and inspection of the equipment falling within its scope.
