Cranes. Safety requirements for loader cranes

Status : Confirmed, Current   Published : January 2016



This International Standard specifies the minimum requirements for the design,calculation,examination and testing of hydraulic powered loader cranes and their mountings onto chassis or static foundations.

It is applicable to all new loader cranes manufactured one year after its publication. It is not the intent of this International Standard to require the retrofitting of existing loader cranes.

It is not applicable to loader cranes used on board ships or floating structures or to articulated boom system cranes designed as a total integral part of special equipment such as forwarders.

It deals with all significant hazards, hazardous situations or hazardous events relevant to loader cranes, with the exception of hazards related to the lifting of persons, when used as intended and under conditions of misuse which are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer. See Annex A for a list of the significant hazards.


The use of cranes for the lifting of persons may be subject to specific national regulations.
