SECTION X: ADDITIONAL GUIDANCE The equipment covered by the B30 Standard is subject to hazards that cannot be abated by mechanical means, but only by the exercise of intelligence, care, and com- mon sense. It is therefore essential to have personnel involved in the use and operation of equipment who are competent, careful, physically and mentally quali- fied, and trained in the proper operation of the equip- mentand the handling ofloads. Serious hazards include, but are not limited to, improper or inadequate mainte- nance, overloading, dropping or slipping of the load, obstructingthe free passageofthe load, and usingequip- ment for a purpose for which it was not intended or designed. The B30 Standard 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 equipment or material
