Over deze norm
This European Standard, when used together with EN ISO 4254-1 and EN 15811, specifies safety requirements and measures for all types and sizes of self-propelled rough-terrain work platforms for orchard’s operations (WPO) as defined in 3.1, used in agriculture, designed to work on unimproved natural terrain and/or disturbed terrain and intended to move at least two persons to working positions in an orchard where they are carrying out fruit picking, thinning out, pruning, or other operations related to orchard’s upkeep from the work platform with the intention that persons are getting on and off the work platform only at access positions at ground level or on the chassis. It describes methods for the elimination or reduction of hazards arising from the intended use of these machines by at least two persons (operators) in the course of normal operation and service, except hazards related to conveyor belts and forks. In addition, it specifies the type of information on safe working practices (including residual risks) to be provided by the manufacturer. When requirements of this document are different from those which are stated in EN ISO 4254-1, the requirements of this document take precedence over the requirements of EN ISO 4254-1 for machines that have been designed and built according to the provisions of this document. This European Standard, taken together with EN ISO 4254-1 and EN 15811, deals with all the significant hazards, hazardous situations and events (as listed in Table 1) relevant to WPOs, when they are used as intended and under the conditions of misuse foreseeable by the manufacturer. It does not cover the hazards arising from: a) use in potentially explosive atmospheres; b) getting on and off the work platform at changing levels. This European Standard does not apply to: a) Mobile c) tail lifts (see EN 1756-1 and EN 1756-2); d) mast climbing work platforms (see EN 1495); e) lifting tables (see EN 1570-1); f) aircraft ground support equipment (see e.g. EN 1915-1 and EN 1915-2); g) elevating operator positions on industrial trucks (see EN 1726-2); h) unguided work cages suspended from lifting appliances (see e.g. EN 1808).
