If necessary, however, the railings must be designed and constructed in accordance with a specific risk assessment: An additional note draws attention to other possible hazards, and the reader is also reminded of ISO relating to risk assessments.
In general, if it is anticipated that regular access will be required for machine operation, cleaning or maintenance, then a permanent means of access should be given due consideration see also Clause 5 below. Designed to be trimmed on-site, this solution saves companies the time and money it takes to fabricate their own gates.
Where there are hazards not covered by the standard, such as moving parts ej machinery, extreme temperatures or hazards caused by the environment, the standard says that these should be considered and addressed by, for example, preventing unauthorised 41122-3.
When most people refer to stepladders they probably mean a short ladder with folding legs that enable it to be free-standing.
BS EN ISO 14122-3:2016
Nevertheless, it would be prudent to verify the safety requirements either by calculation or testing. For testing stepladders, the reader is referred to ENLadders.
Who is this standard for? It also notes that a self-closing gate should be used. It is also een that any point on the handrail and any barriers or obstacles, there must be a free space of 141223. Also, if the handrail is interrupted by a blank space, this should have a width 14122-33 75 mm and mm.
For a new machine that is being CE marked to the Machinery Directiveworking to the standard gives a presumption of conformity to the relevant EHSRs; without the standard, it is necessary to demonstrate that the EHSRs have been fulfilled by some other means. The UNI EN Standard also states that the parapets should be resistant to harmful environmental agents corrosive atmosphere, humidity, cold, etc.
Furthermore, the standard applies to parts of the building or civil construction if the main function of these is to provide access to the machine. Clause 6Specific requirements applicable to step laddersprovides similar details to those in Clause 5.
KeeWalk roof step-overs are available in a range of sizes, for obstacles ranging from mm up to mm in height. References are made to other subclauses that help in determining which type of access should be selected, but the point to note is that there must be good reasons for using any means of access other than those listed higher up the hierarchy.
This part of BS EN ISO gives requirements for non-powered stairs, stepladders and guard-rails which are a part of a stationary machine, and to the non-powered adjustable parts e. If guard-rails are being installed alongside platforms or walkways, Part 3 will have to be used in conjunction with Part 2 as well. It will be used by: The four are all B-Type standards, meaning they deal with specific aspects of machinery safety and can be applied to a wide bx of categories of machinery.

Readers who are concerned about what changes might occur in relation to standards once the UK leaves the European Union can rest assured that it is unlikely that there will be any change here because BS EN ISO is equivalent to the international standard and it is all but inconceivable that the UK would cease to use this.
In other words, when designing and specifying means of access, consideration should be given to preventing unauthorised access. Visit our w… twitter.

Means of access, as with guarding, help to control access to machine-related hazards under different circumstances — such as operation, cleaning and maintenance — and should not themselves introduce significant new risks.
Guidelines for the European Standard EN ISO
Conveyor Guarding Explaining the hazards associated with conveyors, regulations and standards, and how to safeguard conveyors without adversely affecting productivity. The edges of the handrail shall not have sharp ends, in order to prevent the risk of cutting or clothes getting entangled. For example, rather than require an access point so that lubrication points can be reached, lubrication points should be made accessible from ground level or a lubrication circuit and pump could be installed.
Kee Safety has also added a mid rail, minimising the gap between the top of the gate and 14212-3 bottom rail. All of the 141223 protection systems manufactured by Metal House are designed to be in compliance with the 141223 of the EN You may experience issues viewing this site in Internet Explorer 9, 10 or From 14122-33 to south The standard also states that the gate should not be locked, but held in closed position, and should be designed to open easily and closed with a firm stop, preventing users pushing against the gate and potentially falling through the opening.
Furthermore, three-point contact needs to be maintained except for very brief periods eg starting a screwheavy objects should not be carried, leaning ladders should be secured and, if stepladders are used and side loads are imposed, then the stepladder should be secured.
As part of the free survey, the safety engineers provide a short written report that identifies areas of non-compliance and actions that can be taken to reduce risk, improve safety and comply with PUWER.
