Safety of machinery - Safety distances to prevent danger zones being reached by the lower limbs

This International Standard establishes values for safety distances to prevent access and distances to impede free access to machinery danger zones to prevent their being reached by the lower limbs of persons of 14 years of age and above.

These distances apply when adequate safety can be achieved by distance alone, and when access by the upper limbs is not foreseeable according to the risk assessment.

The safety distances to prevent access relate to openings, and serve to protect those persons trying to reach danger zones under the conditions specified for different reaching situations.

The distances to impede free access relate to the height from ground level to the protective structure, and serve to reduce risk to persons by limiting the free movement of the lower limbs.

For certain applications, there are justifiable reasons to deviate from these distances. Standards dealing with these applications should indicate how adequate safety can be achieved.
