This European Standard specifies additional requirements for the design of elevating control stations on cranes. General requirements for control stations on cranes are specified in EN 13557. This European Standard also specifies requirements for the driving mechanism, the supporting and suspension system and for safety devices for the elevating control station. This European Standard does not cover hazards which could occur during transport, erection, commissioning, modification, maintenance, de-commissioning or disposal. This European Standard does not apply to control stations which will move with a load or a load lifting attachment. This European Standard does not apply to lifts for crane drivers. This European Standard does not deal with noise hazards because noise due to the movement of the elevating control station is negligible compared to the noise due to the normal operation of the crane. NOTE Noise hazards are dealt within the appropriate European Standard for specific crane types. The significant hazards covered by this European Standard are identified in Clause 4. This European Standard is not applicable to elevating control stations which are manufactured before the date of publication by CEN.
