BS EN ISO 13857 PDF

One way to reduce or avoid risks caused by machinery in a working environment, is to implement protective barriers or zones of reach. By putting these safety measures in place, workers will be out of reach of hazard zones, safeguarding their arms and legs. BS EN ISO focuses on equipment safety and occupational safety by specifying safety distances to protect the upper and lower limbs of workers. These best practice recommendations include body dimensions, length, machine guards and barriers or holes.

One way to reduce or avoid risks caused by machinery in a working environment, is to implement protective barriers or zones of reach. By putting these safety measures in place, workers will be out of reach of hazard zones, safeguarding their arms and legs.

BS EN ISO focuses on equipment safety and occupational safety by specifying safety distances to protect the upper and lower limbs of workers.

These best practice recommendations include body dimensions, length, machine guards and barriers or holes. How does it work? The standard looks at various reaching situations when the machinery is used.

It also shares reliable surveys of anthropometric data based on the population groups most likely to be found in the relevant countries. Other topics include biomechanical factors, such as compression and joint rotation limits; technical and practical aspects; and additional measures for persons who might deviate from the specified body dimensions. What is new? This document replaces EN and EN Who should buy it?

Your health and safety responsibilities have not changed in the transition period. Find the latest information on our Brexit pages The use of Standards in complying with European product safety Directives is not compulsory, but they can be useful when designing products. Standards may deal with broad general principles, aspects of safety common to many products, or be product specific. Normally they are published documents containing technical information to guide or define practice in a consistent way, and are usually used by designers and manufacturers of products. They are also used by customers when specifying products, and authorities when checking product compliance, particularly where the use of a standard is listed in the Declaration of Conformity or the technical file. Normally the use of standards is voluntary and they do not impose legal responsibilities. However, in some cases legislation may "call-up" a specific standard effectively giving it legal force, or their use by a manufacturer may be declared, effectively binding that person and their product, to the requirements of the standard.

Version 2. The intuitive Safety Distance Calculator features drop-down menus from which the user selects the application risk level high or low , the horizontal distance to the hazard and the height of the hazard. Based on these inputs, the calculator immediately displays the required height for the protective structure. As with the standard, the calculator also gives the safety distances for slots, round, square and irregularly shaped apertures through which a person could reach. Full instructions are provided on how to use the Safety Distance Calculator V2.

Product Details This document establishes values for safety distances in both industrial and non-industrial environments to prevent machinery hazard zones being reached. The safety distances are appropriate for protective structures. NOTE 1 It is not practical to specify safety distances for all persons. Therefore, the values presented are intended to cover the 95th percentile of the population. Data for preventing lower limb access for children is not considered. The distances apply when sufficient risk reduction can be achieved by distance alone.

This is a standard of type B1 regarding a specific safety aspect: the safety distances. Its purpose is to provide the safety requirements that the protective structures must have in order to prevent the achievement and contact of Hazard Zones in both industrial and non-industrial environments, for this reason also the situations of possible contacts for 3-years-old children are considered. The Standard allows to measure the effectiveness of a protective structure, defining the appropriate distance between the structure and the Hazard Zone, considering the dimension and the geometry of the protection in English "Safeguard" and its possible openings. All these considerations are valid only in the case in which the distance from the hazard is already a sufficient measure to reach the safe condition by itself.
