used in the splitting and shearing of leather and synthetic materials.
This standard takes account of intended use, foreseeable misuse, component and systems failure.
The machines are for fixed installation.
This document is not applicable to the splitting and bandknife shearing machines which are manufactured before the date of its publication as EN.
All the significant hazards listed in clause 4 are safeguarded by the requirements included in clause 5 except dust and fire.
For these hazards general guidelines are proposed in normative annex A.
Designers and manufacturers shall verify directly that the methods adopted to reduce these hazards have been successful.
