This document shall be used together with prEN 1010-1:2003. Both parts together identify all significant hazards relevant to bookbinding, paper converting and paper finishing machines when they are used as intended and under the conditions foreseen by the manufacturer (see clause 4). The specific requirements in EN 1010-4 take precedence over respective requirements in prEN 1010-1:2003.
This document does not deal with risks generated by noise emitted from the machines. These issues are covered basically in prEN 1010-1:2002. However, for machines like sheet folding machines and machines for the production of envelopes and sanitary items, some specific proposals for noise reduction measures are given.
This document is not applicable to bookbinding, paper converting and finishing machines manufactured before the date of publication of this document by CEN.
