1 Scope
This document specifies methods for identifying fire hazards resulting from machinery and for performing a risk assessment.
This document gives the basic concepts and methodology of protective measures for fire prevention and protection to be taken during the design and construction of machinery. The measures consider the intended use and reasonably foreseeable misuse of the machine.
This document provides guidelines for consideration in reducing the risk of machinery fires to acceptable levels through machine design, risk assessment and operator instructions.
This document is not applicable to:
— mobile machinery;
— machinery designed to contain controlled combustion processes (e.g., internal combustion engines, furnaces), unless these processes can constitute the ignition source of a fire in other parts of the machinery or outside of this;
— machinery used in potentially explosive atmospheres and explosion prevention and protection; and
— fire detection and suppression systems that are integrated in building fire safety systems.
This document is also not applicable to machinery or machinery components manufactured before the date of its publication.
2 Normative references
The following documents are referred to in the text in such a way that some or all of their content constitutes requirements of this document. For dated references, only the edition cited applies. For undated references, the latest edition of the referenced document (including any amendments) applies.
GB/T 15706-2012, Safety of machinery – General principles for design – Risk assessment and risk reduction (ISO 12100:2010, IDT)
Examples of machine limits that are useful in fire risk assessment are as follows: — intended use and reasonably foreseeable misuse of the machine;
— properties of materials processed by the machine;
— machine operating modes;
— anticipated levels of training, experience or ability of the machine operators, maintenance personnel, and where appropriate the general public;
— the level of awareness of fire hazards by those persons likely to be exposed to the fire hazards;
— the anticipated life of the machine and its components and the impact of ageing with respect to creation of fire hazards;
— recommended service intervals;
— housekeeping and level of cleanliness as potential contributors to a fire hazard; — the environment in which the machine is expected to be operated (e.g., dry, dusty, humid, hot, cold conditions).
5.3 Identification of fire hazards
Following the determination of the limits of the machinery, reasonably foreseeable fire hazards shall be identified, taking into consideration the phases of machinery life in which a fire hazard can be present.
Note: See Clause 4 for a general discussion on the nature of fire hazards. All reasonably foreseeable fire hazards associated with the various uses of the machine shall be identified. The hazard can be identified according to the fire loads and ignition sources (see Figure 4).
For the determination of fire scenarios according to fire loads and ignition sources and for an estimation of the fire risk, the procedures outlined in ISO 12100 shall be followed. The procedure provides a sequence of logical steps allowing systematic examination of the fire hazards arising from the machinery and/or the work process (see Figure 3). Identification of fire hazards shall include the following steps:
— identification of intended and reasonably foreseeable operating conditions; — identification of combustible and/or flammable materials that are related to the fire hazard (all materials involved in the machine and process, including raw and process materials);
