This European Standard defines the general safety requirements for hot rolling mills for long products as defined in 3.1. This European Standard deals with significant hazards, hazardous situations and events relevant to hot rolling mills for long products. It deals not only with circumstances where the machinery is used as intended, but also includes other conditions foreseen by the manufacturer, such as foreseeable faults, malfunctions or misuse (see Clauses 4 and 5). This applies also to hazards arising during various phases of the life of the machinery and equipment as described in 5.4 of EN ISO 12100:2010.
