Certified vs. Qualified

According to Kyle Rask, concrete pumping program & risk manager at NBIS, the distinction between the terms “certified” and “qualified” is an essential one that must be made.

FAQs About ASME B30.27, Material Placement Systems

The B30.27 safety standard addresses the manufacture, inspection, maintenance and use of concrete pumps and concrete conveyors. Most important, it prescribes safety responsibilities to contractors, pump and belt owners and operators, suppliers and others on a concrete pour. Complying with the standard gives each company represented on the job site an increased level of ownership in safety. By partnering together and taking ownership of our individual responsibilities, we can make job sites safer than ever.

ACPA Job Site Safety Campaign Update

In early 2023, the American Concrete Pumping Association hit the trade show circuit to launch a major job site safety campaign and microsite. brings heightened awareness of ASME B30.27, the safety standard for material placement systems. The campaign highlights the responsibilities of each trade working with or around a concrete pump that are prescribed under the standard, with the ultimate goal of keeping every person on a job site safe.
