ANSI ASC A14.3-2008 (R2018)

Ladders - Fixed - Safety Requirements

This standard prescribes minimum requirements for the design, construction, and use of fixed ladders, and sets forth requirements for cages, wells, and ladder safety systems used with fixed ladders, in order to minimize personal injuries. All parts and appurtenances necessary for a safe and efficient ladder shall be considered integral parts of the design.


ANSI B11.19-2010

Performance Requirements for Safeguarding

This standard provides performance requirements for the design, construction, installation, operation and maintenance of the safeguarding (guards, safeguarding devices, awareness devices, safeguarding methods). Incorporates some of the requirements of ANSI B15.1-2000 (R2008.)


ANSI Z136.1-2014

American National Standard for Safe Use of Lasers

Z136.1 provides guidance for the safe use of lasers and laser systems by defining control measures for each of seven laser hazard classifications. A practical means for accomplishing this is to (1) classify lasers and laser systems according to their relative hazards and to (2) specify appropriate controls for each classification. Once a laser or laser system is properly classified, there should be no need to carry out tedious measurements or calculations to meet the provisions of this standard. However, technical information on measurements, calculations and biological effects is also provided within the standard and its appendixes.


ASME B20.1-2018

Safety Standard for Conveyors and Related Equipment

B20.1 applies to the design, construction, installation, maintenance, inspection, and operation of conveyors and conveying systems in relation to hazards. The conveyors may be of the bulk material, package, or unit handling types where the installation is designed for permanent, temporary, or portable operation. This Standard shall apply, with the exceptions noted below, to all conveyor installations. This Standard specifically excludes any conveyor designed for, installed for, or used primarily for the movement of human beings. This Standard does, however, apply to certain conveying devices that incorporate within their supporting structure work stations or operatorÆs stations specifically designed for authorized operating personnel.


B11.TR1-2016

Ergonomic Guidelines for the Design, Installation and Use of Machine Tools (NOT AN AMERICAN NATIONAL STANDARD)

This document addresses those considerations which will assist in design, installation and use of manufacturing systems, including individual and integrated machine tools and auxiliary components.


ISO 13850:2015

Safety of machinery - Emergency stop function - Principles for design

ISO 13850:2015 Standard specifies functional requirements and design principles for the emergency stop function on machinery, independent of the type of energy used.

It does not deal with functions such as reversal or limitation of motion, deflection of emissions (e.g. radiation, fluids), shielding, braking or disconnecting, which can be part of the emergency stop function.

The requirements for this International Standard apply to all machines, with exception to:

- machines where an emergency stop would not reduce the risk;

- hand-held or hand-operated machines.

NOTE The requirements for the realization of the emergency stop function based on electrical/electronic technology are described in IEC 60204‑1.
