DESCRIPTION

BS EN 547-1:1996+A1:2008


This standard BS EN 547-1:1996+A1:2008 Safety of machinery. Human body measurements is classified in these ICS categories:
  • 13.110 Safety of machinery
  • 13.180 Ergonomics
This European Standard specifies the dimensions of openings for whole body access as applied to machinery as defined in EN 292-1. It provides the dimensions to which the values given in EN 547-3 are applicable. Values for additional space requirements are given in annex A. This European Standard has been prepared primarily for non-mobile machinery, there may be additional specific requirements for mobile machinery. Dimensions for passages are based on the values for either the 95th or the 99th percentile of the expected user population. Values for the 99th percentile apply to emergency egress routes. The anthropometric data given in EN 547-3 originate from static measurements of nude persons and do not take into account body movements, clothing, equipment, machinery operating conditions or environmental conditions. This European Standard shows how to combine the anthropometric data with suitable allowances to take these factors into account. Situations where people are to be prevented from reaching a hazard are dealt with in EN 294.
