BS EN 13586:2004 specifies design requirements for non-powered access installed on cranes.

It covers access to control stations and all access required for maintenance, certain erection and dismantling operations and emergency.

For those cranes which are intended to be erected and dismantled at their places of work, specific requirements for the access needed during these operations are given in the appropriate European Standards for specific crane types.

The dimensions given in this European Standard do not take into account the safety distances related to guarding; relative movement between crane and adjacent structure; hazardous surface temperature; and electrical equipment.

This European Standard is a harmonised standard to provide one means for access on cranes to conform with the relevant Essential Health and Safety Requirements of the Machinery Directive 98/37/EC.
