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
