Hot work is another area where a 1963 standard is cited. Took me days to track down the right document one time when it became an issue with an inspection.

"Inspection of compressed gas cylinders." Each employer shall determine that compressed gas cylinders under his control are in a safe condition to the extent that this can be determined by visual inspection. Visual and other inspections shall be conducted as prescribed in the Hazardous Materials Regulations of the Department of Transportation (49 CFR parts 171-179 and 14 CFR part 103). Where those regulations are not applicable, visual and other inspections shall be conductedin accordance with Compressed Gas Association Pamphlets C-6-1968 and C-8-1962, which is incorporated by reference as specified in Sec. 1910.6.
"Compressed gases." The in-plant handling, storage, and utilization of all compressed gases in cylinders, portable tanks, rail tankcars, or motor vehicle cargo tanks shall bein accordance with Compressed Gas Association Pamphlet P-1-1965, which is incorporated by reference as specified in Sec. 1910.6.
"Safety relief devices for compressed gas containers." Compressed gas cylinders, portable tanks, and cargo tanks shall have pressure relief devices installed and maintained in accordance with Compressed Gas Association Pamphlets S-1.1-1963 and 1965 addenda and S-1.2-1963, which is incorporated by reference as specified in Sec. 1910.6.On Mon, Aug 17, 2015 at 6:17 PM, Margaret Rakas <mrakas**At_Symbol_Here**smith.edu> wrote:I am moving offices and have probably 30 years' worth of ANSI/NFPA/CGA standards. I am fine with keeping those no longer updated (like the NFPA standard on oxidizer storage) but is there any point in keeping the last 3 editions of (for example) the ANSI standard on eyewashes and safety showers? I have limited space and no time to peruse the history/evolution of safety and compliance a practices...
