|Publication Date:||1 May 2015|
|ICS Code (Industrial trucks):||53.060|
This European Standard specifies the safety requirements for the interface between the work platform and the truck when designed for lifting of persons (covered by prEN 1459-1:2014, FprEN 1459-2:2015 or EN 1459:1998+A3:2012).
This European Standard deals with the significant hazards, hazardous situations and events relevant to the interface when it is used as intended and under conditions of misuse which are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer of the truck. The significant hazards covered by this standard are listed in Annex A with the exception of hazards listed below.
This European Standard does not address hazards which may occur:
a) when handling suspended work platforms which may swing freely;
b) when using non-integrated work platforms or other attachments not intended for the lifting of persons;
c) when operating in potentially explosive atmospheres.
This European Standard does not give requirements for the complete truck fitted with a work platform. This standard does not address risks to parts of the truck other than the interface with the work platform.
