EN ISO 13854:2019 Minimum gaps
In future, EN ISO 13854:2019 Safety of machinery - Minimum gaps to avoid crushing of parts of the human body - will replace the previously applicable EN 349:1993+A1:2008 - which is currently still listed as a harmonized standard in the EU Official Journal and thus gives a presumption of conformity.
"This document enables the user/designer to avoid hazards at pinch points. It defines minimum distances depending on parts of the human body and is applicable if adequate safety can be achieved by this procedure. This document is applicable to risks of crushing hazards and is not applicable to other possible hazards, e.g. bumping, shearing, pulling in".
Changes compared to EN 349:1993+A1:2008
- Editorial revision; data and values for compliance with minimum distances were not changed.
- Merging of EN 349 and ISO 13854 to form EN ISO 13854 (internationalization)
