Where can I get a copy of the document ANSI A10.5-1969?

I have been trying to get a copy of ANSI Standard ANSI A10.5-1969 for cranes & hoists. The ANSI website is not very helpful in obtaining this information. Does anyone know where I can obtain a copy of this document?

Hi Nikkodesign (Mechanical)

I do not know where yhou can find ANSI Standard ANSI A10.5-1969 for cranes & hoists.

But the following may help you:

This standard specify the basic requirement for the design, fabrication, testing and other relevant services of lifting equipment.

This standard is in compliance with requirements in harmonised CEN standards. If relevant CEN standards has not been issued the priority shall be FEM standard, ISO and relevant recognised standards.

If no particular requirements to the equipment are defined, the general parts and data sheet are considered to be sufficient.

Supplier's standard solution shall be used to an optimum extent, provided these solutions are not in conflict with the requirement herein.

Thank you for that information. Althought it is helpful, I specifically need to know how the ANSI A10.5-1969 safety code is stated and what it covers. I imagine the standards are very similar however the OSHA document CRANES AND DERRICKS - §1926.550 specifies the ANSI A10.5-1969 safety code and that is why I am looking for that specific document.

Thanks Again,

Thank You to both IRStuff & Isthill.

I have not yet had a chance to go through the website thoroughly but it does appear to be a much better location than I have found.

FYI: The need for this document is just for reference.
