This European Standard defines the general safety requirements for hot rolling mills for long products as defined in 3.1.
This European Standard deals with significant hazards, hazardous situations and events relevant to hot rolling mills for long products. It deals not only with circumstances where the machinery is used as intended, but also includes other conditions foreseen by the manufacturer, such as foreseeable faults, malfunctions or misuse (see Clauses 4 and 5).
This applies also to hazards arising during various phases of the life of the machinery and equipment as described in 5.4 of EN ISO 12100:2010.
This European standard applies to: Machinery and equipment used for the manufacturing of metal rolled long products from the material supply from (1), via the rolling mill process equipment (2) to (9) including preparation area (10) (exemplary layout is given in Figure 1).
The following equipment is excluded:
a) furnaces in accordance with the EN 746 series;
b) continuous casting machines according to EN 14753;
c) hook conveyors according to EN 619;
d) roll and guide shop equipment (e. g., machine-tool);
e) storage equipment (e.g., high-bay warehouses);
f) cranes, fork lifts, trucks and railway trucks and other vehicles.
This document is not applicable to rolling mills for long products, which are manufactured before the date of its publication as an EN document.
