BS EN ISO 12100-1:2003 + Amenedment 1:2009 Safety of machinery. Basic concepts, general principles for design. Basic terminology, methodology
BS EN ISO 12100 provides designers with an overall framework and guidance to enable them to produce machines that are safe for their intended use. It also provides a strategy for standard makers.
The concept of safety of machinery considers the ability of a machine to perform its intended function(s) during its lifecycle where risk has been adequately reduced.
BS EN ISO 12100-1 defines basic terminology and methodology used in achieving safety of machinery. The provisions stated in this standard are intended for the designer. BS EN ISO 12100-1 does not deal with damage to domestic animals, property or the environment.
Amendment 1 affects hazard identification, risk estimation and risk evaluation and adds additional references.
