Organization: NEN
Publication Date: 1 June 2014
Status: active
Page Count: 54
ICS Code (Construction equipment): 91.220
ICS Code (Tunnel construction): 93.060
scope:

NEN-EN 16191 is applicable to tunnelling machinery as defined in Clause 3 used for the construction of tunnels, shafts and other underground excavations. It deals with all significant hazards, hazardous situations and events relevant to such machinery when they are used as intended and under the conditions of misuse which are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer (see Clause 4). This European Standard covers monitoring for hazardous atmospheres within the confines of the tunnelling machinery. Hand-arm and whole-body vibration are not considered as significant hazard for tunnelling machinery. The following items and applications are not covered by this European Standard: - the additional requirements for the use of tunnelling machinery under hyperbaric conditions; - the additional requirements for use of tunnelling machinery in potentially explosive atmospheres.
