Industrial trucks. Safety requirements and verification. Burden and personnel carriers

Status : Current, Work in hand   Published : November 2013



This part of ISO 3691 gives safety requirements and the means for their verification for self-propelled carriers designed for carrying burdens without lifting, as defined in ISO 5053, and/or personnel carriers, having three or more wheels, a maximum speed not exceeding 56 km/h and a load capacity not exceeding 5 000 kg (hereafter referred to as carriers or trucks).

This part of ISO 3691 is applicable to trucks equipped with a platform (which can be tilting) for the purpose of carrying materials or with a number of seats for the purpose of transporting passengers.

It is not applicable to

  • vehicles intended primarily for earth-moving or over-the-road hauling,

  • driverless trucks,

  • golf cars,

  • tractors with a drawbar pull up to and including 20 000 N equipped with a platform for the purpose of carrying materials.

This part of ISO 3691 deals with all significant hazards, hazardous situations or hazardous events, as listed in Annex A, relevant to the applicable machines when used as intended and under conditions of misuse which are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer.

It does not establish requirements for hazards that can occur when using trucks on public roads or when operating in potentially explosive atmospheres.

Regional requirements, additional to the requirements given in this part of ISO 3691, are addressed in ISO/TS 3691‑7 and ISO/TS 3691‑8.
