BS 5839-1:2013 provides recommendations for the planning, design, installation, commissioning and maintenance of fire detection and fire alarm systems in and around non-domestic buildings.
BS 5839-8:2013 gives recommendations for the design, installation, commissioning and maintenance of voice alarm systems which automatically broadcast speech or warning tones, in response to signals from their associated fire detection and fire alarm systems.
No business continuity plan is complete without serious consideration given to how and what to communicate in the event of an incident or disruption. But how can you be sure that you will be able to communicate appropriately when the unexpected occurs?
BS EN ISO 13857:2008 Safety of machinery. Safety distances to prevent hazard zones being reached by upper and lower limbs
One way to reduce or avoid risks caused by machinery in a working environment, is to implement protective barriers or zones of reach. By putting these safety measures in place, workers will be out of reach of hazard zones, safeguarding their arms and legs. BS EN ISO 13857:2008 focuses on equipment safety and occupational safety by specifying safety distances to protect the upper and lower limbs of workers.
BS EN 953:1997+A1:2009 Safety of machinery. Guards. General requirements for the design and construction of fixed and movable guards
BS EN 953:1997 specifies the general requirements for the design and construction of both fixed and removable machine guards that protect persons from mechanical hazards. Focusing on the use of guards to minimise exposure to hazards and setting up protective barriers, this standard helps users to improve equipment safety.
PD 5304:2005 gives clear, practical guidelines to ensure a high standard of machinery and equipment safety. It looks at a range of health and safety requirements, ranging from the right selection of protective measures and safeguards, to hands-on examples of machine guard design and their applications.
