Tracked Changes (Redline) - Double acting hydraulic rescue tools for fire and rescue service use — Safety and performance requirements

active, Most Current
Organization: BSI
Publication Date: 25 February 2020
Status: active
Page Count: 142
ICS Code (Fire-fighting): 13.220.10
ICS Code (First aid): 11.160
scope:

This European Standard specifies safety and performance requirements for double acting hydraulic rescue tools manufactured after the date of publication.

It is applicable to double acting hydraulic rescue tool systems which are intended for use by the firefighting and rescue services, principally for cutting through, spreading or pushing apart the structural parts of road vehicles, ships, trains, aircraft and building structures involved in accidents. They consist of a separate power pack, the tool[s] and the necessary interconnections and intended accessories, as defined in Clause 3 - Terms and definitions.

This document deals with all significant hazards, hazardous situations or hazardous events relevant to the machinery, when it is used as intended and under conditions of misuse which are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer.

NOTE 1 The aim is to assist while extracting the casualties or to create a working space for paramedical services taking the local conditions into account.

It is not applicable to additional requirements for:

a) operation in severe conditions (e.g. extreme environmental conditions such as: temperatures outside the range -20 °C up to +55 °C, corrosive environment, tropical environment, contaminating environments, strong magnetic fields, potentially explosive atmospheres);

b) the risk directly arising from the means provided for the portability, transportability and mobility of double-acting hydraulic rescue tools during periods of their operation.

NOTE 2 For the EU/EEA other Directives can be applicable to the equipment in the scope, for example the Electro Magnetic Compatibility Directive.
