Where there are hazards not covered by the standard, such as moving parts of machinery, extreme temperatures or hazards caused by the environment, the standard says that these should be considered and addressed by, for example, preventing unauthorised access.
Earlier this White Paper mentioned the need to prevent unauthorised access. This is Part 1 in a series of four international standards which define general requirements for safe access to machinery. Annex ARequirements for the design of anti-climb devices, is normative and should, dn, be complied with often an Annex to a standard is informative only. Furthermore, although the standard is not applicable retrospectively, anyone who is concerned about the adequacy and safety of an existing permanent means of access will also benefit from reading the White Paper.
Annex C lists the significant technical changes between ISO Code of practice for the design of industrial type stairs, permanent ladders and walkways AMD No longer current but cited in Building Regulations guidance.
The ISO series as a whole is applicable to both stationary and mobile machinery where fixed means of access are necessary.
Enn will therefore help readers to understand and interpret the machinery access standard, whether they are new to designing permanent means of access or have designed them before but using the previous edition of the standard.

However, the scope of the standard specifically excludes powered means of access lifts, escalators or other devices designed to move persons between levels. The four parts are all B-Type standards, meaning they deal with specific aspects of machinery safety and can be applied to a wide range of categories of machinery.
The faster, easier way to work with standards. Clause 4 of Part 1 lists the most significant hazards to consider when determining the type and location of the means of access.

While not mandatory, it is highly recommended that the relevant parts of the standard are referred to, whether the intention is to use custom-designed or modular access systems manufactured from steel, stainless steel, aluminium or another material. As with guards, when considering means of access the first approach should be to design-out the risks.
