Road operation machinery - Safety - Part 1: General requirements; German and English version FprEN 17106-1:2019
This document specifies the common safety requirements for road operation machinery. This document deals with the significant hazards common to road operation machinery, when they are used as intended and under the conditions of misuse which are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer associated with the whole life time of the machine (transport, assembly, dismantling, equipment in service and out of service, maintenance, moving on site, storage, disabling and scrapping). The requirements specified in this part of the standard are common to two or more families of road operation machinery. This document gives safety requirements for all types of road operation machinery and shall be used in conjunction with one of parts 2 to 4-1. These machine specific parts do not repeat the requirements from part 1 but supplement or modify the requirements for the type of road operation machinery in question. This European Standard applies to: a) Road surface cleaning machines (as currently defined in EN 15429-1); b) Winter service machines (as defined in group 1 and 2 of EN 15144:2007); c) Road service area maintenance machines for grass cutting and brush/hedge cutting (see EN 15436-1:2008).This standard deals with: a) equipment permanently mounted on carrier vehicles; b) interchangeable equipment; c) self-propelled machinery with an integrated specially designed chassis; d) trailed machines; e) interfaces. For multipurpose machinery the parts of the standard that cover the specific functions and applications have to be used, e.g. sweeper used for spreading thawing material or snow removing machines with brooms and ploughs shall use the relevant requirements of prEN 17106 parts 2 to 4-1.
