    Earth-moving machinery - Safety - Part 8: Requirements for graders


    This part of EN 474 deals with all significant hazards, hazardous situations and events relevant to graders as defined in EN ISO 6165:2006, when they are used as intended and under conditions of misuse which are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer (see Clause 4). This part also deals with graders equipped with attached snowplough. The requirements of this part are complementary to the common requirements formulated in EN 474-1:2006+A1:2009. This part does not repeat the requirements from EN 474-1:2006+A1:2009, but adds or replaces the requirements for application for graders. This part specifies the appropriate technical measures to eliminate or reduce risks arising from the significant hazards, hazardous situations and events during commissioning, operation and maintenance of graders. This European Standard is not applicable to graders manufactured before the date of publication of this European Standard by CEN.
