ISO 14119 is an international standard that aims to ensure the safety of people when they come into contact with moving or alert work equipment. It applies to locking and unlocking devices used to protect people from injury or death caused by unauthorised or inadvertent access to such equipment.
ISO 14119 applies to all types of work equipment, whether industrial equipment, construction machinery, machinery, food processing equipment or vehicles. It also applies to maintenance workshops, distribution centres and warehouses, among others.
ISO 14119 defines the requirements and recommendations for the design, installation, maintenance and use of locking and unlocking devices for work equipment. It covers the requirements for locking and unlocking devices used to protect persons from injury or death caused by unauthorised or inadvertent access to moving or alert equipment, and for locking and unlocking devices used to protect persons from injury or death caused by unauthorised or inadvertent access to operating equipment.
To ensure personal safety, ISO 14119 provides specific requirements for each type of locking and unlocking device. It also defines the performance and quality criteria that must be met to ensure the proper functioning of these devices.
In addition, ISO 14119 provides requirements for user training and for the documentation provided with the locking and unlocking devices. It also includes requirements for the maintenance and inspection of these devices to ensure that they remain in good condition and function properly.
By following the requirements of ISO 14119, companies can ensure that their locking and unlocking devices for work equipment are safe and effective, thereby protecting people from the risk of injury or death when using work equipment. By implementing locking and unlocking devices that comply with ISO 14119, companies can also reduce the risk of production disruption and repair costs associated with workplace accidents. Finally, by following ISO 14119, companies can demonstrate their commitment to occupational safety and health and help create a safe and healthy working environment for all employees.
