They must not cause risk as a result of accidental release.

The operator must, if necessary, from the main operating site be able to note that no occupants are in the high-risk areas. If this is impossible, that prior to any starting fires a secure system, such as an audio and/or Visual signal. The employees must have the time and/or the ability quickly to avoid risks associated with equipment starting and/or stopping. Control systems must be safe and must be chosen, taking into account the failure, disruption and loads, which can be anticipated in the context of the intended use.

3.1.6 If driving with a self propelled working tool can entail risks for the employees, it must meet the following requirements:

(a)), it must be fitted with a device to prevent accidental starting.

b) If working device includes multiple devices that can move simultaneously on the Rails, it must be fitted with suitable devices to reduce the consequences of a possible collision.

c) there must be a device to slow down and stop of working device. To the extent that the consideration of safety so requires, there must be a nødbetjenings device with easily accessible controls or an automatic system for slowing down and stopping device in case of failure of the main input device.

(d) If the driver's direct field of vision) is insufficient for the purposes of safety, adequate auxiliary devices must be installed to improve the field of vision.

e) if the device is intended for use at night or in dark places must be equipped with a lighting device which is adapted to the work to be done, and to guarantee adequate safe conditions for the employees.

f) If working device in itself constitutes a fire risk, or if the trailer and/or load pose a fire hazard, which can expose the employees for safety risks, it must be equipped with appropriate fire-fighting equipment, unless such equipment is already in sufficient proximity to the place of use.

g) remote-controlled equipment must stop automatically if they move outside the control area.

h) remote-controlled equipment, which under normal conditions of use may involve risks for impact or entrapment, must be equipped with devices that protect against such risks unless there already are other appropriate devices to control the risk of collision.

3.2 minimum requirements for equipment used for lifting loads 3.2.1 If equipment used for lifting loads is installed firmly, it is necessary to ensure that it is solid and stable during use, especially taking into account the burdens, they must promise, and to how the net is hung or fastened.

3.2.2 equipment used for lifting loads must be clearly marked with the nominal load. In addition, there may be a load plate that shows the nominal loads for different equipment configurations.

Accessories for lifting equipment shall be marked in such a way that the technical characteristics that affect safety, appears.

If the equipment is not designed for lifting persons, should this, if there is the opportunity to make mistakes, is indicated by an appropriate, clear signage.

3.2.3 Fixed installed equipment must be installed in such a way that the risk is reduced that burden

(a)) hit people,

b) unintentionally making dangerous moves or falls down, or

c) unintentionally released.

3.2.4 equipment used for lifting or moving of persons must be designed in such a way that
