1. Purpose. This bulletin prescribes responsibilities, procedures, and guidance for implementing
the requirements of the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) of 1970, as amended to date, to
be used in the accomplishment of safety inspections and testing of lifting devices.
NOTE
When specific Department of the Army (DA) inspection, load,
and/or proof testing requirements have been published for
designated lifting equipment, those requirements will take
precedence over procedures in this bulletin. There may be
instances where host nation standards may apply. In those
cases the more stringent standards will be met.
2. Scope. This bulletin applies to Headquarters, Department of the Army Major Commands
(Including subordinate commands, installations and activities) and separate installations and activities
reporting directly to Headquarters, Department of the Army.
3.
Definitions. For the purpose of this publication, the following definitions apply:
a. Lifting Devices. Any device or component used to raise, lower, hold, or position a load from
one location or elevation to another. Examples of lifting devices include forklift trucks, cranes, manual
or motorized pallet jacks, hoists, wreckers, A-frames, slings, ropes, wire ropes, hooks, O-rings, pear
rings, spreader bars or lifting clamps, beams, jacks, safety stands, and jack stands.
b. Lifting Fixtures. Any device or assembly of devices used to facilitate attachment of a load to
a lifting device. Examples of lifting fixtures include an H-beam with nylon slings, wire rope with
spreader bars or rope with lifting clamps.
c. Periodic. As related to inspections, a period of one year or less, based upon the nature of the
lifting device and the degree of exposure to wear, deterioration, or malfunction.
NOTE
On-vehicle equipment (jacks, winches, and towing equipment),
commercial wreckers, and lifting devices that are a “special
application” part of weapons systems and covered by other
technical manuals (TMs)(i.e., lifting slings [beams] that are part
of a warhead section, i.e., Pershing 1A) are exempt from
requirements of this bulletin when covered by specific TMs.
d. Load Rating. The load rating is the maximum authorized load that may be lifted by a lifting
device. The load rating may be less than or equal to, but shall not exceed the Manufacturer’s Rated
Load. For fixtures, the smallest Manufacturers Rated Load component shall equal the fixtures rated
load.
e. Manufacturer’s Rated Load. The Manufacturer’s Rated Load is the maximum load that a
piece of equipment and/or its accessories are allowed to lift; based on the equipment’s capacity data
plate or other guidance from the manufacturer.
f. Retrofit or Modification Work Orders (MWOs). A publication or directive authorizing rework
modification.
g. Depot Maintenance Work Requirements (DMWRs). Precise criteria and definite instructions
for the overhaul, repair, or reconditioning process and final operational test of equipment prior to the
acceptance and certification for placement in service.
