Over deze norm
This European Standard applies to all machinery (stationary and mobile) where fixed means of access are necessary. This standard applies to fixed ladders which are a part of a machine. This standard may also be applied to fixed ladders to that part of the building where the machine is installed, providing the main function of that part of the building is to provide a means of access to the machine. This standard applies also to ladders which are not permanently fixed to the machine and which may be removed, moved to the side or pivoted (swivel-mounted) for some operations of the machine (e.g. changing tools in a large press). For the significant hazards covered by this standard, see Clause 4 of EN ISO 14122-1. This standard is not applicable to machinery which are manufactured before the date of publication of this standard by CEN.
