EN ISO 12100 - Principles for the manufacture of safe machinery

EN ISO 12100

EN ISO 12100 gives design engineers a complete overview of the manufacture of machines, which are safe for their intended purpose. The standard EN ISO 12100 largely combines EN ISO 12100-1 and -2 as well as EN ISO 14121-1.

The term machinery safety looks at the ability of a machine to fulfil its intended function(s) during its service life, whereby the risk has been sufficiently reduced. The aim of Part 1 of EN ISO 12100 is to define the basic hazards, thereby helping the designer to identify relevant and significant hazards.

Contents of EN ISO 12100

The following hazards are to be taken into account, among others:

  • Mechanical hazards
  • Electrical hazards
  • Thermal hazards
  • Hazards generated by noise
  • Hazards generated by vibration
  • Hazards generated by radiation
  • Hazards generated by materials and substances
  • Hazards generated by the neglect of ergonomic principles in the design of machinery

 

Other relevant standards alongside EN ISO 12100

The harmonised standard EN ISO 12100 defines important procedures for safety-related systems and safety-related parts of machinery and plant control systems. Based on this fundamental standard, other harmonised standards such as EN ISO 13849-1/-2 and EN 61508 and its sector standard EN 62061 describe the design, construction and integration of safety-related parts of control systems and safeguards.
