Safety of machinery - Anthropometric requirements for the design of workstations at machinery (ISO 14738:2002/Cor 1:2003, and Cor 2:2005)

Status: Valid

This International Standard establishes principles for deriving dimensions from anthropometric measurements andapplying them to the design of workstations at non-mobile machinery. It is based on current ergonomic knowledgeand anthropometric measurements.

This International Standard specifies the body's space requirements for equipment during normal operation in sittingand standing positions. This International Standard does not specifically include space demands for maintenance, repairing and cleaning work.

This International Standard does not give recommendations specifically for visual display terminal workstations atmachinery. For this purpose ISO 9241-5 can be used in conjunction with this International Standard.

Situations where people are to be prevented from reaching a hazard are dealt with in ISO 13852.
