Health Risk Reduction Standards

Health Risk Reduction standards are focused on an exposition of numerous principles for the control of various risks to the health of personnel interacting with machinery. Assessing the diverse health risks, the standards detail the identification, measurement, and evaluation of radiation and airborne hazards emitted by machinery, risks associated with repetitive handling at high frequency, manual interaction, and more. Through specifications of ergonomic movements and postures for workers, proper design techniques that reduce hazardous emissions, and the application of efficient safeguards against risk-inducing practices, health risk reduction standards are essential to lowering the overall level of health risk.

BS EN 12198-1:2000+A1:2008

Safety of machinery. Assessment and reduction of risks arising from radiation emitted by machinery. General principles (British Standard)

This standard deals with the emission of radiation from machinery. This European Standard gives advice to manufacturers for the construction of safe machinery, if no relevant C-type standard exists. This radiation emission may be functional for processing or may be undesirable. The issues of electromagnetic compatibility are not addressed in the standard. This European Standard is intended to give advice to C-type standardization groups, on how to identify radiation emissions or fields , how to determine their significance and intensity, how to assess the possible risks and what means may be used to avoid or reduce radiation emissions. This advice should be elaborated in C-type standards for specific classes of machines as assessable requirements. This standard deals with the emission of all types of electromagnetic non-ionizing radiation. Ionizing radiation may be dealt with in other documents or in the future revisions. This standard does not deal with the emission of laser radiation. Radiation sources fixed to a machine which are used only for lighting are excluded from the scope of this standard. This standard applies to machinery as defined in clause 3.1 of EN 292-1:1991.


BS EN 12198-2:2002+A1:2008

Safety of machinery. Assessment and reduction of risks arising from radiation emitted by machinery. Radiation emission measurement procedure (British Standard)

This European Standard defines basic technology and specifies general procedures for making and reporting measurements of quantities related to radiation emitted by machinery. It covers the different radiation emissions as defined in EN 12198-1. This standard applies to machinery as defined in 3.1 of EN 292-1:1991.


BS EN 12198-3:2002+A1:2008

Safety of machinery. Assessment and reduction of risks arising from radiation emitted by machinery. Reduction of radiation by attenuation or screening (British Standard)

The purpose of this European standard is to provide means to enable manufacturers of machinery concerned by a radiation hazard to design and manufacture efficient safeguards against radiations. Specific technical details of the design of shields for the different types of radiation and machines will be provided in other standards. This European standard applies to machinery as defined by EN 292. Part 1 of this standard contains the general principles of risk assessment of radiation emission by machinery. Details of the measurement of the radiation emission are given in Part 2 of this standard. This standard deals with a design strategy for reducing the radiation flux by attenuation or screening.
