|Publication Date:||15 December 2016|
|ICS Code (Industrial trucks):||53.060|
This part of ISO 3691 gives safety requirements and the means for their verification, additional to those of ISO 3691-1, for industrial trucks with a vertical, non-tilting mast:
a) those trucks having an elevating operator position, and order‑picking trucks, as defined in ISO 5053-1, where the elevating operator position and the load‑handling device lifts to a height of more than 1 200 mm above ground level;
b) lateral- and front-stacking trucks, as defined in ISO 5053-1, designed to travel with a load-handling device elevated more than 1 200 mm above ground level, with the load-handling device elevated, lowered or laterally displaced, laden or unladen, while the truck is travelling.
These trucks are designed to travel indoors on a smooth, level surface (e.g. concrete) and can be guided, unguided, or both, when in use; they are not intended to tow or push.
This part of ISO 3691 is not applicable to stacker trucks which handle two loads, one on the forks and the other on the support arms, this type of truck being covered by ISO 3691-1.
It is not applicable to trucks with an elevating operator position up to and including 1 200 mm, or to trucks specifically designed to travel with an elevated load having a fork height up to and including 1 200 mm above ground level.
It is not applicable to low-level order pickers with elevating operator's position up to and including 1 200 mm lift height which can be equipped with an additional load lifting device having a maximum lift height of 1 800 mm from ground level.
This part of ISO 3691 deals with all significant hazards, hazardous situations, or hazardous events, as listed in Annex A, relevant to the applicable machines when used as intended and under conditions of misuse which are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer.
It does not establish requirements for hazards that can occur when using trucks on public roads or when operating in potentially explosive atmospheres.
Regional requirements, additional to the requirements given in this part of ISO 3691, are addressed in ISO/TS 3691-7 and ISO/TS 3691-8.
