CEN - EN 474-1

Earth-moving machinery - Safety - Part 1: General requirements

active, Most Current
Organization: CEN
Publication Date: 1 November 2006
Status: active
Page Count: 68
ICS Code (Earth-moving machinery): 53.100
scope:

This European Standard specifies the general safety requirements for earth-moving machinery1) described in EN ISO 6165:2006, except rollers and horizontal directional drill.

NOTE 1 Rollers are covered by EN 500.

NOTE 2 Horizontal directional drills are covered by EN 791.

This European Standard also applies to derivative machinery (see 3.1.2) designed primarily for use with equipment to loosen, pick-up, move, transport, distribute and grade earth and rock.

This European Standard  gives the common safety requirements for earth-moving machinery families and is intended to be used in conjunction with one of the EN 474 parts 2 to 12. These machine specific parts (EN 474-2 to -12) do not repeat the requirements from EN 474-1:2006+A1:2009, but add or replace the requirements for the family in question.

NOTE 3 The requirements specified in this part of the standard are common to two or more families of earthmoving machinery.

This part gives specific requirements for demolition machinery.

Specific requirements in EN 474 parts 2 to 12 take precedence over the respective requirements of EN 474-1:2006+A1:2009.

For multipurpose machinery the parts of the standard that cover the specific functions and applications have to be used e.g. a compact loader also used as a trencher shall use the relevant requirements of EN 474 parts 1, 3 and 10.

The standard also covers general requirements for attachments intended to be used with earth moving machine families covered in the scope.

Except for part 12 this European Standard does not deal with the electrical hazards related to the main circuits and drives of machinery when the principal source of energy is electrical.

This European Standard does not deal with towing of trailers.

This European Standard deals with all significant hazards, hazardous situations and events relevant to earth-moving machinery, when used as intended and under conditions of misuse which are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer (see Clause 4). This European Standard specifies the appropriate technical measures to eliminate or reduce risks arising from the significant hazards, hazardous situations and events during commissioning, operation and maintenance of earth-moving machinery.

This European Standard is not applicable to earth moving machines, which are manufactured before the date of publication of this European Standard by CEN.

1) For travelling on public roads the national traffic regulations apply until harmonised requirements are available. (A CENstandard is under preparation.)
