Scope
This European Standard establishes the ergonomic principles to be followed during the process of design of machinery.

This European Standard applies to the interactions between operators and machinery when installing, operating, adjusting, maintaining, cleaning, dismantling, repairing or transporting equipment, and outlines the principles to be followed in taking the health, safety and well-being of the operator into account. This European Standard provides a framework within which the range of more specific ergonomics standards and other related standards relevant to machinery design should be applied.

The ergonomic principles given in this European Standard apply to all ranges of human abilities and characteristics to ensure safety, health and well-being and overall system performance. Information will need to be interpreted to suit the intended use.

NOTE Although the principles in this European Standard are orientated towards machinery for occupational use, they are also applicable to equipment and machinery for private use.
