|Publication Date:||1 October 2008|
|ICS Code (Earth-moving machinery):||53.100|
This part of EN 474 deals with all significant hazards, hazardous situations and events relevant to earth and landfill compactors as defined in EN ISO 6165:2006, when they are used as intended and under conditions of misuse which are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer (see Clause 4). Other compactors such as roller compactors, rammer compactors and vibratory plates, which are dealt with in EN 500-1:2006 and EN 500-4:2006 are not covered in EN 474. The requirements of this part are complementary to the common requirements formulated in EN 474-1:2006. This part does not repeat the requirements from EN 474-1:2006, but adds or replaces the requirements for application for earth and landfill compactors. This part 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 and landfill compactors. This part does not deal with the specific hazards related to derivative use. This European Standard is not applicable to earth and landfill compactors manufactured before the date of publication of this European Standard by CEN.
