Annex C lists the significant technical changes between ISO The four parts are all B-Type standards, meaning they deal with specific aspects of machinery safety and can be applied to a wide range 141222-2 categories of machinery.

However, see Clause 6 below. For a new machine that is being CE marked to the Machinery Directiveworking to the standard gives a presumption of conformity to the relevant EHSRs; without the standard, it is necessary to demonstrate that the EHSRs have been fulfilled by some other means. Procter Machine Guarding offers free Machine Guarding Compliance Surveys of standalone machinery and assemblies of machines, old or new, and can also assess permanent means of access.

You may experience issues viewing this site in Internet Explorer 9, 10 or A final point to note is that ISO Part 5 is in preparation, which will deal with permanent means of access on mobile machinery. Clause 4 presents the General requirements for stairs, stepladders and guard-rails, including the loadings to be used in strength and deflection calculations when designing these structures.
Machine manufacturers small, medium and large enterprises Health and safety bodies regulators, accident prevention organizations, market surveillance, etc.
Note that subclause 6. However, the scope of the isk specifically excludes powered means of access lifts, escalators or other devices designed to move persons between levels.
In other words, when designing and specifying means of access, consideration should be given to preventing unauthorised access. When most people refer to stepladders they probably mean a short ladder with folding legs that enable it to be free-standing. Part 1 contains useful definitions, such as those for fixed ladder, stepladder, stair and ramp essentially the differences relate to the angle of pitch, and ladders have rungs whereas stepladders and stairs have steps.

It may seem strange that permanent means of access to machinery are related to machine guarding but, in fact, they are.
As with guards, when considering means of access the first approach should be to design-out the risks. References are made to other subclauses that help in determining which type of access should be selected, but the point to note is that there must be good reasons for using any means of access other than those listed higher up the hierarchy.
For the purposes of BS EN ISOpermanent means of access are working platforms, walkways, stairs, stepladders, guard rails and fixed ladders. As well as applying to rigidly attached means of access, the standard also applies to non-powered adjustable or movable parts such as sliding or folding ladders. Clause 6 ido, Specific requirements applicable to step laddersprovides similar details to those in Clause 5.
For example, rather than require an access point so that lubrication points can be reached, lubrication points should be made accessible from ground level or a lubrication circuit and pump could be installed. Nevertheless, it would be prudent to verify the safety requirements either by calculation or testing.
