Over deze norm
This part of EN 474 deals with all significant hazards, hazardous situations and events relevant to cable excavators as defined in EN ISO 6165:2006, when they are used as intended and under conditions of misuse which are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer (see Clause 4). This European Standard applies also to cable excavators, their undercarriage and upper-structure, if intended for use in combination with other equipment or attachment, such as drill rigs, pile driving and extracting equipment and moving equipment (e.g. rail track, walking legs, pontoon, ship) or stationary undercarriage. This European Standard is not dealing with the specific hazards due to these additional equipment or attachment. The requirements of this part are complementarily to the common requirements formulated in EN 474-1:2006. This part does not repeat the requirements from EN 474-1:2006, but adds or replaces the requirements for application for cable excavators. This part 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 the machinery in the scope. This European Standard is not applicable to cable excavators manufactured before the date of publication of this European Standard by CEN.
