SECTION X: ADDITIONAL GUIDANCE The equipment covered by the B30 Standard is subject tohazardsthatcannotbeabatedbymechanicalmeans,but only by the exercise of intelligence, care, and common sense. It is therefore essential to have personnel involved intheuseandoperationofequipmentwho arecompetent, careful, physically and mentally qualified, and trained in theproperoperationofthe equipmentand thehandlingof loads. Serious hazards include, but are not limited to, improper or inadequate maintenance, overloading, drop- pingorslippingofthe load, obstructingthe free passage of the load, and using equipment for a purpose for which it was not intended or designed. The B30 Standards Committee fully realizes the impor- tance of proper design factors, minimum or maximum dimensions, and other limiting criteria of wire rope or chain and their fastenings, sheaves, sprockets, drums, and similar equipment covered by the Standard, all of which are closely connected with safety. Sizes, strengths, and similar criteria are dependent on many different factors, often varying with the installation and uses. These factors depend on (a) the condition of the equipmen
SECTION 18-0.2: DEFINITIONS 18-0.2.1 Types of Equipment cab-operated stacker crane: a crane controlled by an operator in a cab that is attached to the bridge mast, trolley, stacker mast, or load carriage (see Figure 18-0.2.1-1). cantilever gantry stacker crane: a gantry or semi-gantry crane in which the bridge girders extend transversely beyond the crane runway on one or both sides. crane: a machine for lifting and lowering a load and moving it horizontally, with the hoisting mechanism being an integral part of the machine. floor-operated stacker crane: a crane that is controlled by an operatoron the floororan independentplatform using ameanssuspendedfromthecrane(seeFigure18-0.2.1-2). gantrystackercrane: a crane similar to an overhead crane except that the bridge for carrying the trolley(s) is rigidly supported on two or more legs running on fixed rails or other runway. outdoorcrane: an overhead or gantry crane that operates outdoors and for which provisions are not available for storage in an area that provides protection to the crane from weather conditions. An indoor crane that may operate outdoors on a periodic basis is not classified as an outdoor crane.
