2 Modification to the Introduction
Replace the text with the following:

"This European Standard amends and supplements EN 957-1. The requirements of this specific standard take

precedence over those in EN 957-1.
This document is a type C standard as stated in ISO 12100.

The machinery concerned and the extent to which hazards, hazardous situations and hazardous events are

covered are indicated in the scope of this document.

When provisions of this type C standard are different from those which are stated in type A or B standards, the

provisions of this type C standard take precedence over the provisions of the other standards, for machines

that have been designed and built according to the provisions of this type C standard."

3 Modification to the Scope
Replace the text with the following:

"This European Standard specifies safety requirements and test methods for treadmills in addition to the

general safety requirements and test methods of EN 957-1. It is intended that EN 957-6 is applied together

with EN 957-1.

This part of EN 957 deals with significant hazards, hazardous situations and events relevant to stationary

training equipment used as intended and under the conditions of misuse foreseeable by the manufacturer

(see Clause 4).

EN 957-6 is applicable to power-driven as well as to non-power/manually driven training equipment type

treadmills (hereafter referred to as treadmills) with the classes S, H and I and classes A, B and C regarding

accuracy.

This document is not applicable to treadmills which are manufactured before the date of its publication as a

European Standard."

4 Modifications to Clause 2 "Normative references"
Replace the first paragraph with the following one:

"The following documents, in whole or in part, are normatively referenced in this document and are

indispensable for its application. For dated references, only the edition cited applies. For undated references,

the latest edition of the referenced document (including any amendments) applies."

Add the following references:

"EN ISO 11201, Acoustics — Noise emitted by machinery and equipment — Determination of emission sound

pressure levels at a work station and at other specified positions in an essentially free field over a reflecting

plane with negligible environmental corrections (ISO 11201)

EN ISO 11202, Acoustics — Noise emitted by machinery and equipment — Determination of emission sound

pressure levels at a work station and at other specified positions applying approximate environmental

corrections (ISO 11202)

EN ISO 12100, Safety of machinery — General principles for design — Risk assessment and risk reduction

(ISO 12100)"
5 Modification to 3.5 "side handrail"
Replace "users weight" with "user's weight".
6 Addition of new Clause 4 "List of significant hazards"
Add the following new clause and renumber all following clauses:
4 List of significant hazards

Table 1 shows all the significant hazards, hazardous situations and events, as far as they are dealt with in this

European Standard, identified by risk assessment as significant for this type of equipment and which require

action to eliminate or reduce the risk.

NOTE For a particular treadmill, a risk assessment should be carried out by the manufacturer to identify any

additional significant hazards so that suitable protective measures can be taken. Additional hazards are outside the scope

of this standard.
For identification and evaluation of hazards EN ISO 12100 applies.
