The Three Governing Bodies of USA Chain Manufactures

The three governing bodies of USA Chain Manufactures are OSHA, ASME & ASTM. These safety standards in manufacturing are set in place to help ensure the safety of the employees and the quality of the chains they manufacture.

  1. OSHA – OSHA is a statutory document. Whatever is stated within OSHA is a legal requirement.
  2. ASME – ASME (The American Society of Mechanical Engineers) is a Consensus Document that establishes safety and quality standards within the chain industry.
  3. ASTM – ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) is very similar to ASME. The committees are comprised of similar individuals and the scope is similar. Where ASME’s focus is on assembly and application Standards, ASTM’s focus is primarily on the manufacturing of chain.
