Safety of Machinery - Minimum Gaps to Avoid Crushing of Parts of the Human Body
Published By:International Organization for Standardization (ISO)
The object of this International Standard is to enable the user (e.g. standard makers, designers of machinery) to avoid hazards from crushing zones. It specifies minimum gaps relative to parts of the human body and is applicable when adequate safety can be achieved by this method.
This International Standard is applicable to risks from crushing hazards only and is not applicable to other possible hazards (e.g. impact, shearing, drawing-in).
NOTE - For impact, shearing or drawing-in hazards, for example, additional or other measures need to be taken.
