This European Standard deals with the significant hazards, hazardous situations and events, common to demountable machines, as defined in prEN xxxzz-1, intended for construction, maintenance inspection of the railway infrastructure, shunting and emergency rescue vehicles, when they are used as intended by the manufacturer, see clause 4. The manufacturer shall give warning of the risks concerning the conditions of misuse which are reasonably foreseeable .
This European Standard deals with the common hazards during transport, assembly and installation, commissioning, running on track, use including setting, programming, and process changeover, operation, cleaning, fault finding, maintenance and de-commissioning of the machines.
NOTE Specific measures for exceptional circumstances are not dealt with in this European Standard. They can be subject of negotiation between manufacturer and the operator.
The common hazards dealt with include the general hazards presented by the machines, and also the hazards presented by the following specific machine functions:
- ballast tamping, ballast cleaning, ballast regulating, ballast consolidating;
- track renewal;
- rail maintenance;
- catenary renewal / maintenance;
- maintenance of the components of the infrastructure;
- inspection and measurement of the components of the infrastructure;
- tunnel inspection / ventilation;
- emergency rescue and recovery
during commissioning, use, maintenance and servicing.
This European Standard applies to self propelled machines that are not intended to operate signalling and control systems. Other similar machines are dealt with in other European Standards, see Annex D.
It is assumed that a finished standard automotive chassis used as a host for a demountable machine will offer an acceptable safety level for its designed functions before conversion. This specific aspect is not dealt with in this European Standard.
