Overview

This European Standard contains ergonomic requirements for the location and arrangement of displays and control actuators in order to avoid hazards associated with their use. It applies to displays and control actuators for machinery and other interactive equipment (for instance devices and installations, instrument panels, control and monitoring consoles). This European Standard is not applicable to the location and arrangement of displays and control actuators which are manufactured before the date of its publication as EN. This European Standard has been prepared to be a harmonized standard in the sense of the Machinery Directive and the associated EFTA regulations. This document is a type B standard as stated in the provisions of EN ISO 12100. The provisions of this document can be supplemented or modified by a type C standard. This standard contains safety provisions and is intended for occupational safety purposes. Please also pay attention to the standards EN 894-1, "Safety of machinery - Ergonomics requirements for the design of displays and control actuators - Part 1: General principles for human interactions with displays and control actuators"; EN 894-2, "Safety of machinery - Ergonomics requirements for the design of displays and control actuators - Part 2: Displays"; EN 894-3, "Safety of machinery - Ergonomics requirements for the design of displays and control actuators - Part 3: Control actuators". The Committee responsible for this standard is NA 023-00-04 GA "Gemeinschaftsarbeitsausschuss NAErg/NIA: Ergonomie für Informationsverarbeitungssysteme" ("Joint Working Committee NAErg/NIA: Ergonomics for information processing systems") at DIN.
