Truck mixers - Safety requirements

The Standard is to specify the safety requirements applicable to truck mixers. A truck mixer as defined by this standard is used for the transportation and mixing of concrete, mortars and mineral building materials. The safety requirements will cover the superstructure (mixer equipment) and its interface with the truck chassis but not cover the truck itself and the elements required for the basic transport function of the truck. Other machinery that can be combined with the truck mixer, such as concrete pumps, distributor masts and conveyor belts will not be covered by the document.

Introduction
This document is a type-C standard as stated in EN ISO 12100:2010.

This document is of relevance, in particular, for the following stakeholder groups representing the market

players with regard to machinery safety:
a) machine manufacturers (small, medium and large enterprises);

b) health and safety bodies (regulators, accident prevention organizations, market surveillance, etc.).

Others can be affected by the level of machinery safety achieved with the means of the document by the

above-mentioned stakeholder groups:
a) machine users/employers (small, medium and large enterprises);

b) machine users/employees (e.g. trade unions, organizations for people with special needs);

c) service providers, e.g. for maintenance (small, medium and large enterprises);

d) consumers (in case of machinery intended for use by consumers).

The above-mentioned stakeholder groups have been given the possibility to participate at the drafting

process of this document.

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

covered are indicated in the scope of this document.

When requirements of this type-C standard are different from those which are stated in type-A or type-B

standards, the requirements of this type-C standard take precedence over the requirements of the other

standards for machines that have been designed and built according to the requirements of this type-

C standard.
