Rörverk - Maskinsäkerhet
This European Standard describes the health and safety requirements of fully automated plant used in the process of tube forming, rolling and finishing (hereafter referred to as "plant"). It describes the foreseeable, significant hazards, hazardous situations, and events arising from plants and from particular machines integrated to form the plant; it does not describe the full health and safety requirements for each particular machine. It indicates preventive measures for avoiding the hazards and reducing the risks. It deals not only with circumstances where the machinery is used as intended, but also includes other conditions foreseen by the manufacturer, such as foreseeable faults, malfunctions or misuse.
This European Standard specifies the requirements to ensure the safety of persons which are to be met during the design, assembly, transport, commissioning, operation, maintenance and decommissioning of the equipment.
This standard assumes that installations are operated and maintained by adequately trained and competent personnel. Manual intervention for setting, adjustment and maintenance is accepted as part of the normal use of these machines.
This standard assumes that the machinery is used with adequate workplace lighting conforming to EN 12464-1 or to local regulations.
This standard applies to:
Automated plant and equipment operated for the production of metal seamless hot and cold finished tubes and welded tubes. A list of machines which could make up different plants is shown in Annex D (informative).
