However, it is almost inevitable that Part 3 will also be required, because this covers the guard-rails that are usually necessary with platforms and walkways. Plates-formes de travail et passerelles Title in German Sicherheit von Maschinen.

Another point to note from the definitions is that handrails must be rigid, which excludes the use of ropes, chains or cables. Annex ARequirements for the design of anti-climb devices, is normative and should, therefore, be complied with often an Annex to a standard is informative only. Clause 8Verification of safety requirementsgives a choice of testing or calculation.
However, great care should be taken with ribbed ramps, bearing in mind that subclause 4.

Plates-formes de travail et passerelles. Clause 4 of Part 1 lists the most significant hazards to consider when determining the type and location of the means of access. Part 1 contains useful definitions, such as those for fixed ladder, stepladder, stair lso ramp essentially the differences relate to the angle of pitch, and ladders have rungs whereas stepladders and stairs have steps. However, the same subclause states that the minimum height of the guard-rail shall be mm, so it appears that the former may be a typographical error and the height of the handrail should be greater than or equal to mm.

When most people refer to stepladders they probably mean a short isl with folding legs that enable it to be free-standing.
Clause 5Specific requirements of ladder systemsprovides extensive information relating to ladder design, including the profiles and dimensions of rungs round rungs are not permitted.
