Training Tuesday— an Introduction the ASTM.
What’s the deal with being a part of ASTM?
1) ASTM F24: Amusement Rides and Devices is made up of approximately 800 members who work together to make everything related to inflatables and the industry safe and all-inclusive.
2) ASTM designation F2374-19 is dedicated specifically to the design, manufacture, operation, and maintenance of inflatables.
3) ASTM requires the manufacturer to provide a user’s manual to the owner (F2374-19:188.8.131.52) and it requires the owner or operator of the inflatable to be responsible for (F2374-19:7):
- Training staff (F2374-19:7.8)
- Inspecting the inflatable and documenting date, time, and relevant information (F2374-19:7.7)
- Maintenance program (F2374-19:7.6)
- Emergency response situation plan (F2374-19:10.3)
4) ASTM gives our customers 7-Days to notify us of any incident the results in an injury. (F2374-19:7.10.3)
5) ASTM F2374-19:6 requires that your manufacturer follow the quality, manufacture, and construction guidelines when designing and making the inflatable.
