Over deze norm
This part of EN 474 specifies the general safety requirements for earth-moving machinery described in EN ISO 6165:2006, except rollers and horizontal directional drill. This part also applies to derivative machinery (see 3.1.2) designed primarily for use with equipment to loosen, pick-up, move, transport, distribute and grade earth and rock. This part gives the common safety requirements for earth-moving machinery families and is intended to be used in conjunction with one of the EN 474 parts 2 to 12. These machine specific parts (EN 474-2 to -12) do not repeat the requirements from EN 474-1, but add or replace the requirements for the family in question. Specific requirements in EN 474 parts 2 to 12 take precedence over the respective requirements of EN 474-1. For multipurpose machinery the parts of the standard that cover the specific functions and applications have to be used e. g. a compact loader also used as a trencher shall use the relevant requirements of EN 474 parts 1, 3 and 10. The standard also covers general requirements for attachments intended to be used with earth moving machine families covered in the scope. This European Standard deals with all significant hazards, hazardous situations and events relevant to earthmoving machinery, when used as intended and under conditions of misuse which are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer (see Clause 4). This European Standard specifies the appropriate technical measures to eliminate or reduce risks arising from the significant hazards, hazardous situations and events during commissioning, operation and maintenance of earth-moving machinery.
