The primary objective of this standard is to establish the requirements for the design, construction, installation, operation and maintenance of the risk reduction measures used to eliminate or control hazards to individuals associated with machines. This standard relies on other standards to determine which risk reduction measure(s) is required or allowed to control identified hazards / hazardous situations and is intended to be used in conjunction with the ANSI B11.0 standard on general safety requirements and risk assessments of machines, and any relevant ANSI B11 “base” standard for a given machine. To accomplish this objective, this standard has established responsibilities for the supplier (e.g., manufacturer, rebuilder, installer, integrator, and modifier), the user, and individuals in the working environment. The overall goal is to achieve acceptable risk in the work practices and work environment.
