This European standard identifies the significant hazards (see 4) in the use of all sizes of HP by fire fighting and rescue services, on the basis that they are supplied in a complete form, tested and ready for use, and gives methods for the elimination or reduction of these hazards and for the use of safe working practices. This standard deals with HPs, the base of which is normally a motor vehicle, but can also be static or fixed, or mobile in the form of: - a trailer or de-mountable unit - any other type of self-propelled vehicle For vehicle mounted HPs this standard is intended to be used in conjunction with EN 1846-2, Fire fighting and rescue service vehicles: Common requirements - Safety and performance. This standard is not applicable to HPs which were manufactured before the date of publication of this document by CEN. This European standard is applicable to the structural design calculations and stability criteria, constructional details and tests of HPs, and gives guidance on the intended life limits for HPs. This standard does not specify the special requirements for: - HPs operated by programmable electronic systems and/or radio which do not rely on cables; - use in underground work (mines); - use in potentially explosive atmospheres; - the use of pneumatic cylinders to operate load carrying components.
