introduction
The main purpose of this standard is to provide designers with an overall framework and decision-making guides that enable machinery to be designed at the development stage.
Use a safe machine in the range. This standard also provides a strategy for standard setters to develop consistent and appropriate Class B
Standard and Class C standards.
The concept of mechanical safety takes into account the ability of the machine to perform its intended function during its life cycle after the risk has been sufficiently reduced.
This standard is the basic standard for all standards in the mechanical safety standard system. The structure of the mechanical safety standard system is as follows.
--- Class A standard (Basic Safety Standard), giving basic concepts, design principles and general characteristics applicable to all machines.
---Class B (General Safety Standard), a type of safety device that covers a safety feature of a machine or has a wide range of use;
● Class B1, specific safety features (such as safety distance, surface temperature, noise) standards;
● Class B2, standard for safety devices (such as two-hand control devices, interlock devices, pressure sensitive devices, and protective devices).
--- Class C (Mechanical Safety Standard), a standard that specifies detailed safety requirements for a particular machine or group of machines.
This standard is a Class A standard.
When the content of the C standard is inconsistent with one or more technical provisions of this standard or other Class B standards, the technology of the C standard
The regulations are subject to the rules.
It is recommended that this standard be incorporated into a training course or manual so that the designer can master the basic terminology and general design methodology.
When drafting this standard, we have referred to the contents of GB/T 20000.4 as much as possible.

A set of emission value data collected from a similar machine for comparison.
Note. For comparison of noise, see GB/T 22156.
4 Risk assessment and risk reduction strategies
In order to complete the risk assessment and risk reduction, the designer should take the measures in the following order (see Figure 1).
a) determine various limitations of the machine, including intended use and any misunderstanding that is reasonably foreseeable;
b) identify the hazard and its accompanying dangerous state;
c) risk assessment of each identified hazard and hazard state;
d) assess the risk and decide whether it is necessary to reduce the risk;
e) Take protective measures to eliminate the risk or reduce the risk associated with the danger.
Measures a) to d) are related to risk assessment and e) are associated with reduced risk.
a Answer the initial question with the initial risk assessment results.
Figure 1 is an illustration of the iterative three-step method of risk reduction process
Risk assessment is a series of logical steps that analyze and evaluate mechanically related risks in a systematic approach.
When necessary, risk reduction is required after the risk assessment. In order to eliminate danger by taking protective measures as much as possible or to reduce the wind sufficiently
Risk, it is necessary to repeat the process.
If there is a danger on the machine and no protective measures are taken, it will cause damage sooner or later. An example of danger is given in Appendix B.
The protective measure is a combination of the measures taken by the designer and the user according to Figure 2. The measures taken during the design phase are better than the ones used.
The measures taken by the user, and usually more effective.
a Providing appropriate usage information is a step in the designer's design risk reduction, but the relevant protection measures can only be implemented after the user implements
Play a role.
b User input is information that the designer gets from a general or special user group that is scheduled to use the machine.
c The various protection measures adopted by the user are not hierarchical. These protective measures are outside the scope of this standard.
d Such devices are intended for use in machines where special processes are not foreseen, or special installation conditions beyond the designer's control.
Figure 2 The process of reducing risk through design
In order to minimize risk, the following four factors should be considered. ......
