Other standards and references used for this presentation are as follows:

    • Mobile Hydraulic Crane Standards (PCSA Standard #2; Power Crane and Shovel Association)
    • U.S. Standards (Safety Code for Cranes, Derricks, Hoists, Jacks, and Slings; Crawler, locomotive and truck cranes; USAS B30.5-1968)
