EN 982:1996 +A1:2008

Safety of machinery – Safety requirements for fluid power systems and their components – Hydraulics

This standard applies to hydraulic systems and their components on machinery. It identifies hazards and factors which affect the safety of systems and their components when they are put to their intended use. The principles specified apply to the design, construction and modification of new systems and their components and aspects of use including: – Assembly – Installation – Adjustment – Operation – Cleaning – Maintenance. Components are covered in the standard but only to the extent that safety requirements are given to allow the components to be safely integrated into a system’s design. The standard applies to systems and their components on machinery that are manufactured after the date of the adoption of this standard.

Safety of machinery – System of auditory and visual danger and information signals

To reduce risks associated with misinterpretation of visual and auditory danger signals, a system of danger and information signals is specified taking into account the different degrees of urgency. This European Standard is applicable to all danger and information signals which have to be clearly perceived and differentiated as specified in 5.3 of EN 292-2:1991, by other requirements or by the work situation, and to all degrees of urgency – from extreme urgency to an ALL CLEAR situation. Where visual signals are to be complementary to sound signals, the signal character is specified for both.

Safety of machinery – Ergonomics requirements for the design of displays and control actuators – Part 3: Control actuators

This European Standard gives guidance on the selection, design and location of control actuators so that they are adapted to the requirements of the operators, are suitable for the control task in question and take account of the circumstances of their use. It applies to manual control actuators used in equipment for occupational and private use. It is particularly important to observe the recommendations in this European Standard where operating a control actuator may lead to injury or damage to health, either directly or as a result of a human error.

Safety of machinery – Ergonomics requirements for the design of displays and control actuators – Part 2: Displays

This European Standard gives guidance on the selection, design and location of displays to avoid potential ergonomic hazards associated with their use. It specifies ergonomics requirements and covers visual, audible and tactile displays. It applies to displays used in machinery (e.g. devices and installations, control panels, operating and monitoring consoles) for occupational and private use. Specific ergonomics requirements for visual display terminals (VDTs) used for office tasks are given in the standard EN ISO 9241.

Safety of machinery – Ergonomics requirements for the design of displays and control actuators – Part 1: General principles for human interactions with displays and control actuators

This European Standard applies to the design of displays and control actuators on machinery. It specifies general principles for human interaction with displays and control actuators, to minimise operator errors and to ensure an efficient interaction between the operator and the equipment. It is particularly important to observe these principles when an operator error may lead to injury or damage to health.

Safety of machinery – Visual danger signals – General requirements, design, and testing

This European Standard describes criteria for the perception of visual danger signals in the area that people are intended to perceive and to react to such a signal. It specifies the safety and ergonomic requirements and the corresponding physical measurements and subjective visual check. It also provides guidance for the design of the signals to be clearly perceived and differentiated as described in 5.3 of EN 292-2:1991. This European Standard does not apply to danger indicators: Presented in either written or pictorial form; Transmitted by data display units. This European Standard does not apply to special regulations such as those for public disaster and public transport.

Safety of machinery – Reduction of risks to health from hazardous substances emitted by machinery – Part 2: Methodology leading to verification procedures

This European Standard is applicable to sodium chloride intended for on site electrochlorination of water intended for human consumption using non-membrane technology. It describes the characteristics and specifies the requirements and the corresponding test methods for sodium chloride (see Annex B). It gives information on its use in water treatment.

Safety of machinery. Reduction of risks to health from hazardous substances emitted by machinery. Principles and specifications for machinery manufacturers

This European Standard deals with principles for the control of risks to health due to hazardous substances from machinery. This European Standard is not applicable to hazardous substances which are a hazard to health solely because of explosive, flammable, high or low temperature, high or low pressure or radioactive properties.
