Language in which you want to receive the document.


This European Standard defines technical principles and specifications, to help designers and manufacturers in achieving safety in the design of machinery (see 3.1 in EN 292-1) for professional and non-professional purposes. It may also be used for other technical products having similar hazards. Part 1 and 2 should be used together when considering the solution to a specific problem. They can be used independently of other documents, or as a basis for the preparation of other type A standards or type B and C standards. EN 292-2 in conjunction with part 1 would also assist in a preliminary assessment of machines with regard to their safety, where there is no relevant type C standard available. It is recommended that this standard is incorporated in training courses or in manuals to convey technical principles and specifications to designers, etc.
