This European Standard describes the health and safety requirements of automated lines (see 3.7 and 3.13) used for strip processing. It describes the foreseeable, significant hazards, hazardous situations, and events arising from lines and from particular machines integrated to form the line; it does not describe the fully health and safety requirements for each particular machine. It indicates the possible preventative measures for avoiding or reducing the risks.
This document specifies the requirements to ensure the safety of persons which are to be met during the de-sign, assembly, transport, commissioning, operation, maintenance and decommissioning of the equipment. It deals not only with circumstances where the machinery is used as intended, but also includes other conditions foreseen by the manufacturer, such as foreseeable faults, malfunctions or misuse.
This standard assumes that the installations are operated and maintained by adequately trained competent personnel. Manual intervention for setting, adjustment and maintenance is accepted as part of the normal use.
This standard applies to:
Automated lines for processing of metal strip: from take-over point (see 3.6) of the entry section (terminal equipment, see 3.4) through the process (processing and terminal equipment, see 3.5) up to the take-over point of the exit section or interface to other lines (terminal equipment).

   3   Tension levelling/scale breaking (5.3.9)   
   3   Organic coating (5.3.10)   
   3   Chemical post-treating (5.3.11)   
      Exit section
For annealing lines, the requirements related to the entry and the exit section are applicable, but the process of annealing is not covered by this standard (see EN 746 series).

This European Standard defines the health and safety requirements of strip processing lines (see 3.1).
This European Standard deals with all significant hazards, hazardous situations and events relevant for strip processing line machinery and equipment, when used as intended and under conditions foreseen by the manufacturer, but also includes foreseeable faults and malfunctions in case of misuse.
This European Standard specifies the requirements to ensure the safety of persons which are to be considered and met during the design, assembly, transport, commissioning, operation, maintenance and decommissioning of the equipment.
This European Standard applies to:
Strip processing lines for treating metal strip: from take-over point (see 3.6) of the entry section (terminal equipment, see 3.2) through the process (processing and terminal equipment, see 3.3 and 3.2) up to the take-over point of the exit section or interface to other lines (terminal equipment).
