Essential Health and Safety Requirements relating to the design and manufacture of machines
first The manufacturer of machinery or his authorized representative must ensure that there is carried out a risk assessment in order to determine the health and safety requirements which apply to the machinery. The machinery must then be designed and constructed taking into account the results of this analysis.
By the above iterative risk assessment and risk reduction process, the manufacturer or his representative:
- determine the limits of the machinery, including the intended use and any misuse thereof reasonably foreseeable
- identify the hazards that can arise in connection with the machinery and the associated hazardous situations
- estimate the risks, taking into account the severity of the possible injury or damage to health and the probability of the occurrence,
- assess the risks in order to determine whether it is necessary to restrict them, in accordance with the purpose of these provisions
- eliminate the hazards or reduce the risks associated with these hazards by application of protective measures in the order of priority specified in paragraph 1.1.2
Second The obligations resulting from the essential health and safety requirements only apply when the machine is put at risk when used under the conditions the manufacturer or his representative has prescribed, but also in foreseeable abnormal situations. The requirement of safety integration referred to in section 1.1.2. And the obligations concerning marking of machinery and instructions referred to. 1.7.3. and 1.7.4., valid in all circumstances.
Third The essential health and safety requirements of this Annex are mandatory. Taking into account the state of the art it is possible that its objective can not be attained. In this case, the machine must be designed and manufactured in order as far as possible to meet those goals.
Fourth This Annex is divided into several parts. The first part is general and applies to all kinds of machinery. The other parts refer to certain kinds of more specific hazards. However, it is essential to examine this Annex in its entirety to be sure to meet all the relevant essential requirements. When machinery is being designed must be taken of the requirements of the general part and the requirements of one or more of the other parts depending on the results of the risk assessment carried out in accordance with point 1 of these general principles.
First ESSENTIAL HEALTH AND SAFETY REQUIREMENTS
In this Annex:
'Hazard' means a potential source of injury or damage to health
'Danger zone' means any zone within and / or around machinery in which a person is subject to a risk to his health or safety
'Exposed person' means any person wholly or partially in a danger zone
'Operator' means the person or persons installing, operating, adjusting, maintaining, cleaning, repairing or moving machine
'Risk' means a combination of the probability and severity of an accident or damage to health that can arise in a hazardous situation
"Screening" means part of the machinery used specifically to provide protection by means of a physical barrier
"Protective" means a device (other than a guard) which reduces the risk, either alone or in conjunction with a guard
'Intended use' means the use of machinery in accordance with the information in the manual
'Misuse which is reasonably foreseeable' means the use of machinery in a way not intended in the instructions for use, but which may result from readily predictable human behavior.
1.1.2. Principles of safety integration
The machine should be designed and constructed so that it can function and can be operated, adjusted and maintained without putting persons at risk when these operations are carried out under the conditions prescribed, but also any misuse thereof that can reasonably be is contemplated.
The purpose of the measures taken must be to eliminate any risk of the machine foreseeable lifetime, including in transport, assembly, dismantling, disabling and scrapping.
In choosing the most appropriate solutions, the manufacturer or his authorized representative must apply the following principles in the following order:
as far as possible eliminate or reduce risks (inherently safe design and construction),
take the necessary protection against the risks that can not be removed
provide users with information about the residual risks due to the protection measures taken are incomplete, indicate whether any particular training is required and to provide personal protective equipment is necessary.
When designing and constructing machinery, and when drafting the instructions, the manufacturer or his authorized representative must envisage not only the machine's intended use but also misuse which can reasonably be foreseen.
The machine should be designed and constructed so as to avoid that it is used in an abnormal manner if such use would engender a risk. If appropriate, the instructions must give information to the user about the ways in which experience should be advised not to use this machine.
Machinery must be designed and constructed to take into account the fact that the operator is subject as a result of the necessary or foreseeable use of personal protective equipment.
Machinery must be supplied with all the special equipment and all the spare parts that are essential for the machine to be adjusted, maintained and used safely.
1.1.3. Materials and products

Must be taken special security measures for handling even easier tools and / or machinery parts, which can be dangerous.
Under the intended use, the discomfort, fatigue and physical and psychological stress faced by the operator must be reduced as far as possible on the basis of ergonomic principles:
- allowing for the variability of the operator's physical dimensions, strength and stamina
- sufficient space for the operator to move all parts of the body
- avoiding a machine-determined work rate
- avoid lengthy concentration monitoring
- adapting the man-machine to the characteristics of the operators can be expected to have.
1.1.7. Operator Place
operator position must be designed and constructed in such a way that any risk due to exhaust gases and / or lack of oxygen.
To use the machine in a hazardous environment presenting risks to the health and safety or the machine itself creates a hazardous environment, there must be sufficient funds to ensure that the operator has good working conditions and is protected against any foreseeable hazards.
Operator site must, when needed, be equipped with a suitable cabin that is constructed and / or equipped in such a way that it meets the above requirements. The exit must allow rapid evacuation. Furthermore, where appropriate, be an emergency exit in a direction different from the normal output.
Where appropriate and where the working conditions permit, the operating positions that are an integral part of the machinery must be designed so that the installation of seats.
If the operator must sit during operation and the operating position is an integral part of the machinery, the seat must be provided with the machine.
The operator's seat must enable him to maintain a stable. Furthermore, the seat and its distance from the control devices must be adapted to the operator.
If the machine is subject to vibrations, the seat must be designed and constructed in such a way that the vibrations transmitted to the operator, reduced as much as reasonably possible. The seat mountings must withstand all stresses to which they can be exposed. If there is no floor beneath the feet of the operator, the machine must be equipped with non-slip footrests.
1.2.1. Control systems security and reliability
Control systems must be designed and constructed so that no dangerous situations can occur. They must be designed and constructed:
- they can withstand the intended operating stresses and external factors
- a fault in the control system hardware or software does not lead to dangerous situations

There should be special attention to the following:
- The machine must not start unintentionally.
- Parameters of the machinery must not change in an uncontrolled way when such change can lead to hazardous situations.
- The machinery must not be prevented if the stop command has already been given.
- No moving parts in machinery or piece held by the machinery must fall or be ejected.
- Automatic or manual stopping of the moving parts must not be hindered.
- The protective devices must remain fully effective or give a stop.
- The control system safety-related parts must function properly assembly of machinery and / or partly completed.
For wireless control, an automatic stop, when no proper control signals, including loss of communication.
Control devices must be:
- clearly visible and identifiable and where appropriate, using pictograms
- positioned so that they can be safely operated without hesitation or loss of time and without ambiguity
- designed so that is consistent with the manual control movement and the action to be
- located outside the danger zones, except where necessary for certain control devices such. emergency stop or a teach pendant,
- positioned so that there is no additional risk
- designed or protected so that the desired effect, where a hazard is involved, can only be achieved by a deliberate action
- designed so as to withstand foreseeable forces; there is special emphasis on emergency stop which can be subjected to high loads.
If a control is designed and constructed to perform several different actions, namely where the function is not clear, the action that will be clearly displayed, and if necessary confirmed.
The controls must be designed so that their layout, travel and resistance are compatible with the action taking account of what is ergonomic principles.
The machine must be equipped with the necessary signaling and monitoring devices necessary for the machine to be operated in a safe manner. The operator must be able to read these devices.
The operator must obtain from each operating position must be able to ensure that no one is in the danger zones, or the control system must be designed and constructed so that starting is prevented while someone is in the danger zones.
If this is impossible, that before the machinery starts, an acoustic and / or visual signal. The exposed persons must have time to leave the danger zone or prevent the machinery starting up.
If necessary, to ensure that the machinery can be controlled from the operating positions arranged in one or more predetermined areas or locations.
When multiple operating positions, the control system must be designed so that when a seat is operated, excludes the application of the other; except for stop controls and emergency stops.
When machinery has two or more operating positions, each position must be provided with all the required control devices without involving the operators hindering or putting each other into a hazardous situation.
machine may only be set in motion by deliberate action in connection with a control device for this purpose.
The same applies:
when restarting after a stoppage, whatever the cause
- by a significant change in operating conditions.
Restart or change in operating conditions may be effected by voluntary actuation of a device other than the control device provided if this does not lead to a hazardous situation.
In automatic movement of the machinery may be allowed to start the machine, restarting after stop or change in operating conditions may be possible without intervention, provided this does not cause danger.
If a machine has several starting control devices and the risk that the operators can therefore put each other in danger, install additional equipment to avoid this risk. If safety requires that starting and / or stopping must be performed in a specific sequence, there must be devices which ensure that the correct order.

- have clearly identifiable, clearly visible controls that are quickly accessible
- stop the dangerous process as quickly as possible without creating additional risks
- about necessary, trigger or permit the triggering of certain safeguard movements.
Nødstopsanordningen shall be arranged so that after the stop order remains in the stop position to consciously reset. The device can not be blocked without triggering a stop command. The emergency stop should only be reset by an appropriate operation, and disengaging the device must not restart the machinery starts, but only permit restarting.
Nødstopsfunktionen should be available and operational at any time irrespective of operational mode.
Nødstopsanordningerne should complement other security measures and not replace them.

If machinery has been designed and manufactured for use in several control or operating modes requiring different protective measures and / or work procedures, it must be fitted with a switch for operating or control mode, which can be locked in each position. Each position of the selector must be clearly identifiable and must correspond to a single operating or control mode.
Selector may be replaced by any other device that makes it possible to restrict the use of certain functions of the machinery to certain categories of operator.
If machinery for certain operations to be able to operate with a guard displaced or removed and / or a protective device disabled, the control or operating mode simultaneously:
- disable all other control or operating modes
- permit the operation of hazardous functions by prolonged exposure of the controls
- permit operation of hazardous functions only in reduced risk conditions, and without preventing hazards from linked sequences
- prevent hazardous functions by voluntary or involuntary action on the machine's sensors.
If these four conditions can not be fulfilled simultaneously, the control or operating mode selector must activate other protective measures designed and constructed to ensure a safe.
In addition, the operator must instead be able to control operation of the parts he is working.
