This document specifies requirements for new traffic cones and new traffic cylinders with retroreflective properties.

This document specifies minimum essential visual and physical performance characteristics; test methods for determination of product performance and the means by which this performance may be communicated to the user and the public including safety enforcement agencies.

The document provides a series of categories or classes by which a traffic cone or traffic cylinder may be specified for use in different applications in accordance with best practice.

In the case of physical properties, performance levels and indicative tests are provided for cold weather, stability, and impact resistance when dropped. Requirements for visual recognition properties, colour, retro-reflectivity and luminance are provided.

Provision for identification and marking to declared levels of performance is provided.

There are other product shapes which perform similar functions. This document does not cover devices made in other shapes, or which do not meet the design requirements of this document.

This document specifies the minimum requirements for track geometry measuring principles and systems in order to produce comparable results when measuring the same track. It applies to all measuring systems, attended or unattended, fitted on any vehicle, except those systems defined in EN 13848-3 and EN 13848-4. Only systems put into service after the standard comes into force are concerned.

This document doesn't define the requirements for vehicle acceptance.

This document does not apply to measuring systems dedicated to Urban Rail Systems.

This document deals with principles of sampling of soil, rock and groundwater as part of the geotechnical

investigation and testing.

NOTE 1 This document fulfils the requirements for sampling of soil, rock and groundwater, and groundwater measurements

as part of geotechnical investigation and testing according to EN 1997-1 and EN 1997-2. The aims of such ground

investigations are:

a) to recover soil and rock samples of a quality sufficient to assess the general suitability of a site for geotechnical

engineering purposes and to determine the required soil and rock characteristics in the laboratory;

b) to obtain information on the sequence, thickness and orientation of strata and joint system and faults;

c) to establish the type, composition and condition of strata;

d) to obtain information on groundwater conditions and recover water samples for assessment of the interaction of

groundwater, soil, rock and construction material.

The quality of a sample is influenced by the geological and hydrogeological conditions, the choice and execution of

the drilling and/or the sampling method, handling, transport and storage of the samples.

Soil sampling for the purposes of agricultural and environmental soil investigation is not covered.

NOTE 2 Soil sampling for these purposes is to be found in ISO 10381 series.

Water sampling for the purposes of quality control, quality characterisation, and identification of sources of pollution

of water, including bottom deposits and sludges is not covered.

NOTE 3 Water sampling for these purposes is to be found in ISO 5667 series.

This document applies to pedestrian controlled floor sawing machines having power feed, manual feed or hand feed (see 3.2) for sawing, grooving and milling floor surfaces made of concrete, asphalt and similar mineral building materials where the main power is supplied by electric or internal combustion prime engine. The power transmission of floor sawing machines is mechanical or hydraulic.

This document deals with all significant hazards pertinent to floor sawing machines, when they are used as intended and under the conditions foreseen by the manufacturer (see Clause 4). This document specifies the appropriate technical measures to eliminate or reduce risks arising from the significant hazards.

These machines are designed for use with rotating cutting-off wheels for wet and dry cutting. These cutting-off wheels can be either a diamond cutting-off wheel or a boron nitride cutting-off wheel, according to EN 13236.

This document does not apply to:

— self-propelled ride-on floor sawing machines;

— machines moving along a rail;

— hand-held portable cutting off machines for construction materials mounted on a mobile support, to be used as floor saws;

— remote controlled machines.

This document covers electrical hazards by making reference to relevant European Standards (see 4.2).

Those hazards that are relevant for all mechanical, electrical, hydraulic and other equipment or machinery and that are dealt with in standards for common use are not covered by this document. Reference to pertinent standards is made where such standards are applicable and so far necessary.

In this document, floor sawing machines are called "machines", and cutting-off wheels are called "tools".

This document applies primarily to machines which are manufactured after the date of approval of the standard by CEN.

This part of the EN 13230 series defines additional technical criteria and control procedures as well as specific tolerance limits related to manufacturing and testing prestressed bearers for switches and crossings with a maximum length of 8,5 m. Bearers longer than 8,5 m are considered as special elements and will comply with FprEN 13230 5:2015.

This European Standard provides requirements and measures to deal with the significant and specific railway risks during works on or in proximity of the track and with common principles for the protection of fixed and mobile work sites with trains and/or machines circulating on the working track and trains circulating on the adjacent track(s). Railway risks and protection measures for access and egress to/from the work site are considered in the same way as railway risks and protection measures for work itself. This European Standard is applicable to all operations related to work activities on rail guided systems. Infrastructure of metro, tram and other light rail systems is excluded from the scope ). The following specific railway risks are taken into consideration: — Risk 1: Personnel being struck by a train or injured due to wind drag from a train on open working track (safety of the worker); NOTE 1 Risk 1 includes injuring of a worker by machines, material or equipment being struck by a train on the working track. — Risk 2: Personnel being struck by a train or injured due to wind drag from train on adjacent track (safety of the worker); — Risk 3: Personnel being struck by machine or train on blocked track (safety of the worker); — Risk 4: Machines, material or equipment being struck by a train on the adjacent track (safety of the operation/safety of the worker); — Risk 5: Personnel being electrified or electrocuted by fixed electrical equipment (safety of the worker). NOTE 2 Risk 5 includes hazards caused by pantographs of passing trains. This European Standard also provides requirements to the process of installing basic preventive measures when planning new infrastructure or installing corrective measures when adapting existing infrastructure. This European Standard may be extended to third parties when it is considered appropriate and reasonable by the infrastructure manager, if one or more of the five significant risks described inside this standard, arise as a result of their activities in proximity of the track.
