ASABE revises safety standards for operating mobile slurry tanks

The revision updated multiple key reference documents to those currently in use and made clarifications within the standard.

The American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers has revised its standard for operating mobile liquid and slurry tanks.

The standard, ASAE S317.1 JAN2020, Improving Safety on Enclosed Mobile Tanks for Transporting and Spreading Agricultural Liquids and Slurry, was originally developed in 1968. It provides a guide for uniform practice and is intended to reduce the possibility of personal and public injury during normal servicing and operation of enclosed mobile tanks for transporting and spreading agricultural liquids and slurry. 

The revision updated multiple key reference documents to those currently in use and made clarifications within the standard.

ASABE members with standards access and those with site-license privileges can access the full-text via electronic download on the ASABE online Technical Library. Others can obtain a copy for a fee directly from the library or by contacting ASABE headquarters.

ASABE is recognized worldwide as a standards developing organization for food, agricultural and biological systems, with more than 275 standards currently in publication. Conformance to ASABE standards is voluntary, except where required by state, provincial or other governmental requirements, and the documents are developed by consensus in accordance with procedures approved by the American National Standards Institute.
