ANSI Z245.1-2008

Mobile Wastes and Recyclable Materials Collection, Transportation and Compaction Equipment - Safety Requirements

This revised American National Standard is applicable to all persons engaged in the manufacture, modification, operation, cleaning, maintenance, service, or repair of mobile collecting, transporting, and compacting equipment. It attempts to distinguish between persons who may be the legal owner, lessor, lessee, or who are otherwise contracted with or hired to become involved with, the equipment. Excluded from this standard is equipment used for the collection, transportation, or disposal of hazardous or flammable materials regulated by title 40 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 263 or 49 CFR Parts 171 through 180. Stationary compactors, which were included in American National Standard for Safety Requirements for Refuse Collection and Compaction Equipment, ANSI Z245.1-1975, and American National Standard for Refuse Collecting and Compacting Equipment - Safety Requirements, ANSI Z245.1-1984, are now covered by American National Standard for Refuse Collection, Processing, and Disposal Equipment - Stationary Compactors - Safety Requirements, ANSI Z245.2-1992, as of the effective date of that standard,1 and future revisions of that standard.

Clauses 7 and 8 provide equipment safeguards and features and dual drive configuration requirements that shall apply to mobile rear-loading, side-loading, front-loading, and mechanized container collecting equipment used to receive, compact, transport, and unload waste or recyclable materials; to mobile tilt-frame and hoist-type equipment commonly used to pick up, transport, unload, and set down open top or enclosed waste or recyclable materials containers; to vehicles used to receive, separate, densify, transport, and unload recyclable wastes; to grapple loaders that pick up, load and transport bulky uncontainerized special waste like wood waste or white goods; to vehicles used to transfer waste from one waste processing or disposal facility to another; to satellite vehicles commonly used to receive and transport waste or recyclable materials for unloading into other mobile waste or recyclable materials collecting equipment; and to container lifting devices used to lift, dump and return containers.
