4.7 Conveying device To ensure protection against unintentional contact with the accessible mobile elements, the conveying devices shall be fitted with fixed guards (according to 3.22.1 of EN 292-1:1991) if they do not need to be opened for cleaning and clearing blockages. When frequent access is foreseen, the conveying devices shall be fitted with guards needing a tool to open them. These guards shall remain attached to the machine when open (for example by means of hinges) and automatically lock in the closed position without the use of a tool. SIST EN 13140:2001+A1:2010

EN 13140:2000+A1:2009 (E)

If this type of guards is not used, the conveying devices shall be fitted with:  interlocking movable guards (according to 3.22.4 of EN 292-1:1991); or  movable guards fitted with a device which prevents their opening so long as the parts are moving. For the elements of these devices located less than 550 mm from the ground, guarding from below is not required when the side guard extends downwards for a distance of at least 130 mm below their path.

Mechanical supports complying with 4.1.7.3 of EN 1553:1999 shall be provided in order to enable maintenance and service operations to be carried out by the operator under the hopper in raised position. The distribution auger shall be guarded to prevent any contact from the driver's station, from the ground or from any platform. Machines fitted with a tipping hopper shall be stable when emptying. This requirement is checked in the following conditions:  the machine is placed on a slope of 5°, with its longitudinal axis positioned across the slope;  in the case of lateral tipping, the tipping shall be directed down slope;  in the case of rear tipping, the machine shall be placed successively up the slope and across the slope;  when the hopper is lifted and tilted at its maximum position, a vertical force equal to half of the load capacity of the hopper is applied downwards at the centre of the hopper. In the case of high-tip hopper machines, when the hopper is lifted at its highest position and not tilted, a vertical force equal to the load capacity of the hopper is applied at the centre of the hopper. 4.9 Unloading device The machine shall be so designed that the operator can supervise the unloading process from the driver's station. Mechanical supports complying with 4.1.7.3 of EN 1553:1999 shall be provided in order to enable maintenance and service operations to be carried out by the operator under unloading devices in raised position. It shall be possible for the operator to fit and to remove the mechanical supports from outside the hazard zone.

List of hazards Table A.1 gives the list of hazards based on EN 292-1:1991 and EN 292-2:1991 and Annex A of EN 292-2:1991/A1:1995. Table A.2 gives the list of hazards due to the mobility of the machine. The meaning of the different statements given in the last column (solutions given by this standard) of these Tables are:  "not relevant": the hazard is not significant for the machine.  "dealt with": the hazard is significant. The measures given in the indicated clauses provide guidance for dealing with the hazard in accordance with the principles of safety integration of EN 292; that means:  elimination or reduction of the risk by design, as far as possible;  protection measures;  information for the residual risks.  "partly dealt with": the hazard is significant for several parts of the machine. The measures given in the indicated clauses dealt with this hazard for some of these parts. In the other parts where the hazard is significant, other measures, not included in this standard, will have to be applied in order to deal with this hazard;  "not dealt with": the hazard is significant for the machine but has not been taken into account during the preparation of this standard. For a number of hazards which are indicated as "not dealt with" or "partly dealt with" requirements are given in EN 1553:1999. These hazards are identified by an asterisk (*) in the last column of Tables A.1 and A.2. The hazards arising from the clearance of blockages are not dealt with.
