ISO DIS 20474-1
Earth-moving machinery - Safety - Part 1: General requirements
Publication Date: 03/21/2016 - Complete Document
This part of ISO 20474 specifies the general safety requirements for earth-moving machinery as defined in ISO 6165, each of these requirements being common to two or more earth-moving machine families. It is also applicable to machine attachments, and to derivated machinery designed primarily for equipment used to loosen, pick-up, move, transport or distribute earth, or to grade earth and rock.
It is intended to be used in conjunction with the other parts of ISO 20474, which give the provisions that are specific to particular machine families. Those specific requirements take precedence over the requirement s of this part of ISO 20474 for the machines concerned. For multipurpose machinery, all of those parts of ISO 20474 whose requirements cover the functions and applications of such machines are applicable.
EXAMPLE For a compact loader also used as a trencher, the relevant requirements of ISO 20474-1, ISO 20474-3 and ISO 20474-10 are applicable.
This part of ISO 20474 deals with all relevant hazards, hazardous situations and events relevant to the earthmoving machinery within its Scope when used as intended or under conditions of misuse reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer. It specifies the appropriate technical measures for eliminating or reducing risks arising from relevant hazards, hazardous situations or events during commissioning, operation and maintenance. It is not applicable to machines manufactured before the date of its publication.
