EN ISO 13857 Safety Distance Calculator - video walkthrough

A new video from Procter Machine Safety demonstrates how easy it is to use the company's updated BS EN ISO 13857:2008 Safety Distance Calculator, which can be downloaded free of charge.

BS EN ISO 13857 (Safety of machinery - Safety distances to prevent hazard zones being reached by upper and lower limbs) defines the distances between machine guards and hazardous machinery to prevent access by reaching over or around guards, taking into account the level of risk and the heights of the hazard and guarding. It also defines safe distances when hazardous parts of machinery might be reached through openings. The Safety Distance Calculator from Procter Machine Safety (previously known as Procter Machine Guarding) is considerably easier to use than the standard and has recently benefited from improvements to its visual appearance.

The Calculator is equally suitable for designing new guards or checking the adequacy of existing guards. Users simply select values from drop-down menus and the Calculator shows the required safety distance or guard height, depending how the Calculator is being used. Watch the video above to see how to use the Calculator

Follow the link to download a copy of the Safety Distance Calculator to try it for yourself.
