White Paper 7 – BS EN ISO | Free Downloads | Procter Machine Safety
As well as providing requirements for guard-rails on platforms, stairs and stepladders, Clause 7 also gives details for toe plates, self-closing gates and mezzanine gates.
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.
Procter’s new ISO White Paper, which runs to 11 pages, introduces the standard and explains how it relates to machine guarding and machine safety.
For the significant hazards covered by this part of ISOsee Isk 4. The four parts of the standard are as follows: Wahl eines ortsfesten Zugangs zwischen zwei Ebenen.

Proof sent to secretariat or FDIS ballot initiated: Furthermore, 1412-1 contact needs to be maintained except for very brief periods eg starting a screwheavy objects should not be carried, leaning ladders should be secured and, if stepladders are used and side loads are imposed, then the stepladder should be secured.
When most people refer to stepladders they probably mean a short ladder with folding legs that enable it to be free-standing. It also supplies guidance about the b choice of means of access when necessary access to the stationary machine is not possible directly from the ground level or from a floor.
It applies to permanent means of access which are a part of a stationary machine and also to non-powered adjustable parts e. Anyone responsible for specifying or designing machines or permanent means of access, including building or civil constructions where the main 1422-1 is to provide access to a machine or process, should download or request a copy of the new White Paper.
BS EN ISO 14122-1:2016
Clause 5Specific requirements of ladder systemsprovides extensive information relating to ladder design, including the profiles and dimensions of rungs round rungs are not permitted. Clause 4 presents the Eb requirements for stairs, stepladders and guard-rails, including the loadings to be used in strength and deflection calculations when designing these structures.
Monday to Friday – However, great 14122–1 should be taken with ribbed ramps, bearing in mind that subclause 4. Interestingly, a pragmatic approach is adopted, with several exceptions allowed under particular circumstances.
The previous editions cease to provide a presumption of conformity to the Machinery Directive on 31 December For the purposes of BS EN ISOpermanent means of access are working platforms, walkways, stairs, stepladders, guard rails and fixed ladders. ENMinimum Gaps to Avoid Crushing Explaining the requirements of the standard for minimum gaps to prevent crushing.

Click to learn more. If guard-rails are being installed alongside platforms or walkways, Part 3 will have to be used in conjunction with Part 2 as well. It will therefore help readers to understand and interpret the machinery access standard, whether they are new to designing permanent means of access or have designed them before but using the previous edition of the standard.
Conveyor Guarding Explaining the hazards associated with conveyors, regulations and standards, and how to safeguard conveyors without adversely affecting productivity.
Code of practice for the design of industrial type stairs, permanent ladders and walkways AMD No longer current but cited in Building Regulations guidance.
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. NOTE 2 Where no local regulation or standards exist, this part of ISO can be used for means of access which are outside the scope of the standard.

Readers who are concerned about what changes might occur in relation to standards once the UK leaves the European Union can rest assured that it is unlikely that there will be any change here because BS EN ISO is equivalent to the international standard and it is all but inconceivable that the UK would cease to use this.
Nevertheless, it would be prudent to verify the safety requirements either by calculation or testing. 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. Again there may be more recent versions of the document. While not mandatory, it is highly recommended that the relevant parts of the standard are referred to, whether the intention is to use custom-designed or modular access systems manufactured from steel, stainless steel, aluminium or another material.

A final point to note is that ISO Part 5 is in preparation, which will deal with permanent means of access on mobile machinery. This is Part 1 in a series of four international standards which define general requirements for safe access to machinery. An additional note draws attention to other possible hazards, and the reader is also reminded of ISO relating to risk assessments.

Where there are hazards not covered by the standard, such as moving parts ieo machinery, extreme temperatures or hazards caused by the environment, the standard says that these should be considered and addressed by, for example, preventing unauthorised access.
