Safety of machinery. General principles for design. Risk assessment and risk reductionBritish Standard / European Standard / International Organization for Standardization / 31-Dec-2010 / 90 pages ISBN: 9780580742620
BS EN ISO 12100:2010 specifies basic terminology, principles and a methodology for achieving safety in the design of machinery. It specifies principles of risk assessment and risk reduction to help designers in achieving this objective. These principles are based on knowledge and experience of the design, use, incidents, accidents and risks associated with machinery. Procedures are described for identifying hazards and estimating and evaluating risks during relevant phases of the machine life cycle, and for the elimination of hazards or the provision of sufficient risk reduction. Guidance is given on the documentation and verification ofthe risk assessment and risk reduction process.
BS EN ISO 12100:2010 is also intended to be used as a basis for the preparation of type-B or type-C safety standards. It does not deal with risk and/or damage to domestic animals, property or the environment.
NOTE 1 Annex B gives, in separate tables, examples of hazards, hazardous situations and hazardous events, in order to clarify these concepts and assist the designer in the process of hazard identification.
NOTE 2 The practical use of a number of methods for each stage of risk assessment is described in ISO/TR 14121-2.
