OSHA. Guidelines for Pressure Vessel Safety

OSHA directive (PUB 8-1.5) (1989, August 14), 95 pages. This document presents a technical overview and information on metallic pressure containment vessels and tanks. Information on design codes, construction materials, fabrication processes, inspection, and testing applicable to these vessels and tanks are presented. (The full text for this document is not yet available electronically).

OSHA Regulations on Pressure Safety. Currently there is no one specific standard for pressure vessels. However, some OSHA standards require a pressure vessel to be built in accordance with the industry codes and standards. (e.g., 29 CFR 1910.106(b)(1)(v)(b) Flammable and Combustible Liquids requires that pressure vessels be built in accordance with the Code for Unfired Pressure Vessels, Section VIII of the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code 1968). Some standards with requirements for pressure vessels or other related requirements are listed below:
