This document deals with safety requirements for machine design, transport, installation, commissioning, operation, adjustment, maintenance and cleaning. The extent to which hazards, hazardous situations and events are covered is indicated in Annex A.
This document does not consider the following hazards:
-   the use of strapping machines in potentially explosive atmosphere;
