ASME B30.27 Safety Standard.
Concrete pump safety standards
Since the inception of the CPMA in 1999, it has been our goal to formalize the guidelines for the design, manufacturing, testing, safe use, inspection, and maintenance of concrete pumps for the North American market. In later years, our three-chapter CPMA Safety Standard became the basis for what is today the American National Standard (ASME B30.27) and the Canadian Standard (CSAZ151) for safety and was reviewed for inclusion in a possible worldwide standard (ISO TC195).
Over the years, CPMA has also been responsible for the creation and/or adoption of several safety features that can be found on today’s equipment, including:
Concrete pump certification
CPMA is dedicated to supplying equipment and accessories to the concrete pumping industry that meet or exceed the requirements contained in the ASME B30.27 Safety Standard. In order to be a member company of the CPMA, the company must be committed to having the products they manufacture subject to the successful completion of an independent audit at least once every three years. This independent audit will review all pertinent sections of the current AMSE B30.27 Safety Standard and determine if the randomly selected representative samples from the manufacturer meet or exceed the necessary criteria. if there are discrepancies in the audit report, the CPMA member must correct these items within a specified timeframe and on all related equipment being sold in North America.
Once a member has proven that their family of equipment models and accessories can successfully pass an audit, they will be allowed to display both the CPMA member decal and the CPMA certification decal. These decals show that the equipment being sold has been produced with the proper safety regulations in mind and that it is intended for continuous safe operation when used as directed.
