REFERENCE TABLE UPPER LIMBS

Reaching upwards

  • If there is a low risk from hazard zone, then the height of the hazard zone, h, shall be 2 500 mm or more
  • If there is a high risk from the hazard zone, then the height of the hazard zone, h, shall be 2 700 mm or more.

1 - Hazard zone
2 - Reference plane
3 - Protective structure

Reaching over protective structures

  • a - height of hazard zone
  • b - height of protective structure
  • c - horizontal safety distance to hazard zone

The table below (high risk situations) does not consider protection structures with height <1000 mm, because they don’t restrict suffi body movement.
Protective structures with height <1400 mm should not be used without additional security measures.
ln low risk situations are conceivable protective structures of height H 1000 mm.
If safety distance is expressed in the table below with a dash, then you must use the distances according to the size of the net, with mesh 32x67 wire 03 or 40x40 wire 03 04, the minimum safety distance is 200 mm.
