1.1 This standard contains the requirements for safety for the design and installation of equipment intended for the storage, handling and transportation of flat glass inside the factory as described in Clause 3. It applies to stationary, movable and mobile storage equipment (see 3.2), mechanical and pneumatic handling equipment (see 3.3) and transportation equipment (see 3.4) (see overview in Annex A). 1.2 Additional requirements for dealing with specific hazards due to the use outside the factory are dealt with in prEN 13035-2. 1.3 This standard only deals with the devices which are directly in contact with the glass. Tractors, cranes, hoists and fork lifts are out of the scope as well as parts of other powered vehicles that are not in contact with the glass (see 3.4.1). This standard does not apply to manual handling equipment as defined in 3.3.1. 1.4 This standard deals with all significant hazards, hazardous situations and events relevant to equipment for the storage, handling and transportation of flat glass, when they are used as intended and under the conditions of misuse which are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer (see Clause 4). This standard specifies the appropriate technical measures to eliminate or reduce risks arising from the significant hazards during commissioning, the operation and maintenance. Noise has not been considered to be a significant hazard for any type of equipment in the scope of this standard.
1.5 This document is not applicable to storage, handling or transportation equipment for flat glass inside the factory, which is manufactured before the date of its publication as EN.
