BS EN 1005-2:2003+A1:2008 Safety of machinery. Human physical performance. Manual handling of machinery and component parts of machinery

BS EN 1005-2 specifies ergonomic recommendations for the design of machinery involving manual handling of machinery and component parts of machinery, including tools linked to the machine, in professional and domestic applications.

BS EN 1005-2 applies to the manual handling of machinery, component parts of machinery and objects processed by the machine (input/output) of 3 kg or more, for carrying less than 2 m. Objects of less than 3 kg are dealt with in prEN 1005-51.

The standard provides data for ergonomic design and risk assessment concerning lifting, lowering and carrying in relation to the assembly/erection, transport and commissioning (assembly,installation, adjustment), operation, fault finding, maintenance, setting, teaching or process changeover and decommissioning, disposal and dismantling of machinery.

BS EN 1005-2 provides current data on the general population and certain sub-populations.

This part of the standard does not cover the holding of objects (without walking), pushing or pulling of objects, hand-held machines, or handling while seated. BS EN 1005-2 does not apply to specifying machinery manufactured before the date of publication of this document by CEN.
