In all cases, however, they should be designed in accordance with the applicable national and international standards. This article presents 10 things that machine specifiers and designers should know about machine guarding standards , and the information will also be useful for production managers, health and safety manager, health and safety representatives and others with an interest in machine safety. Compliance is not mandatory This first point may come as a surprise, but there is no legal requirement at least in the UK and Europe to comply with machine guarding standards. However, compliance with the relevant standards, especially those harmonised to the Machinery Directive, is generally the best way to demonstrate that the Essential Health and Safety Requirements have been met, so compliance with the standards is strongly recommended. The standard lists those aspects of machinery, people and guards that need to be considered.

A list of organizations represented on this committee can be obtained on request to its secretary. This publication does not purport to include all the necessary provisions of a contract.

Users are responsible for its correct application. This European Standard shall be given the status of a national standard, either by publication of an identical text or by endorsement, at the latest by May , and conflicting national standards shall be withdrawn at the latest by May Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of patent rights.

Once this standard is cited in the Official Journal of the European Union under that Directive and has been implemented as a national standard in at least one Member State, compliance with the normative clauses of this standard confers, within the limits of the scope of this standard, a presumption of conformity with the relevant Essential Requirements of that Directive and associated EFTA regulations.

The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out through ISO technical committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical committee has been established has the right to be represented on that committee. International organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work. In particular the different approval criteria needed for the different types of ISO documents should be noted.

ISO shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights. Any trade name used in this document is information given for the convenience of users and does not constitute an endorsement.

This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition ISO , which has been technically revised. When provisions of a type-C standard are different from those which are stated in type-A or type-B standards, the provisions of the type-C standard take precedence.

It does not deal with functions such as reversal or limitation of motion, deflection of emissions e. The requirements for this International Standard apply to all machines, with exception to: — machines where an emergency stop would not reduce the risk; — hand-held or hand-operated machines.

For dated references, only the edition cited applies. For undated references, the latest edition of the referenced document including any amendments applies.

The emergency stop function is to be initiated by a single human action. It shall override all other functions and operations in all operating modes of the machine without impairing other protective functions e. When the emergency stop function is activated: — it shall be maintained until it is manually reset; — it shall not be possible for any start command to be effective on those operations stopped by the initiation of the emergency stop function.

The emergency stop function shall be reset by intentional human action. Resetting of the emergency stop function shall be operated by disengagement of an emergency stop device see 4. The reset shall not initiate machine start up.
