Safety of machinery – Human body measurements – Part 3: Anthropometric data
This European Standard specifies current requirements for human body measurements (anthropometric data) that are required by EN 547-1 and EN 547-2 for the calculation of access opening dimensions as applied to machinery. The anthropometric data originate from static measurements of nude persons and do not take into account body movements, clothing, equipment, machinery operating conditions or environmental conditions. The data are based on information from anthropometric surveys representative of population groups within Europe comprising at least three million people. Both men and women are taken into account. Measurements are given, as required by EN 547-1 and EN 547-2, for the 5th, 95th and 99th percentiles of the relevant population group within Europe.
