Over deze norm
This European Standard is applicable to tunnelling machinery as defined in Clause 3 used for the construction of tunnels, shafts and other underground excavations. It specifies the essential safety requirements for the design, installation, maintenance, and information for use of such machinery. This European Standard also covers reasonably foreseeable misuse of such machinery in that compliance with the requirements of clause 5 mitigates the risk arising from such misuse. This European Standard covers monitoring for hazardous atmospheres within the confines of the tunnelling machinery. As microtunnelling, thrust boring and auger boring machines do not expose persons to noise, noise is not a significant hazard for such machines. Hand-arm and whole-body vibration are not considered as significant hazard for tunnelling machinery. Tunneling machinery operating below ground level does not present a significant EMC hazard to machinery operating on the surface. The following items and applications are not covered by this European Standard: - air locks and associated equipment which can form an integral part of tunnelling machinery and used for hyperbaric working; - the additional requirements for the use of tunnelling machinery under hyperbaric conditions; - the additional requirements for use of tunnelling machinery in potentially explosive atmospheres; - ancillary tools and equipment which are not an integral part of the tunnelling machinery but used on or with the machinery; - services (e.g. power supply, water, pipes, compressed air, etc.) supplied to the tunnelling machinery - loading and transport equipment which is not an integral part of the tunnelling machinery, e.g. man riders, locomotives, grout cars, segment cars, muck cars and shaft hoisting equipment; This European Standard deals with all significant hazards, hazardous situations and events relevant to tunnelling machinery when used as intended and under the conditions foreseen by the manufacturer. This European Standard is not applicable to tunnelling machinery which is manufactured before the date of publication of this European Standard by CEN.
