Over deze norm
This International Standard establishes general principles useful in reaching the risk reduction objectives established in ISO 12100-1:2003, Clause 5. These general principles are known as risk assessment by which the knowledge and experience of the design, use, incidents, accidents and harm related to machinery is brought together in order to assess the risks during all phases of the life of the machinery. This International Standard gives guidance on the information required to allow risk assessment to be carried out. Procedures are described for identifying hazards and estimating and evaluating risk. The purpose of this International Standard is to provide guidance for decisions to be made on the safety of machinery and guidance on the type of documentation required to verify the risk assessment carried out. This International Standard does not deal with damage to domestic animals, property or the environment.
