This document does not deal with noise hazards because these are dealt with in safety standards for specific types of cranes. It also does not address the design of the cabin with regard to its sound insulation properties.
This document covers specific hazards, which could occur during the use of control devices and control stations. It does not cover hazards, which could occur during transport, construction, modification, de-commissioning or disposal. The hazards covered by this standard are identified in Clause 4.
