They might also apply to you if you maintain gates. The gates should also reverse if they hit someone or something. The gates should have sensors that can stop them if someone has been detected. This could be light beams photoelectric devices , which stop the gates before they reach an obstacle. If there are parts of the gates where someone could become trapped or get crushed while it is moving, these need be protected.

The Standards Board does little apart from setting up sector boards a sector in BSI parlance being a field of standardization such as ICT, quality, agriculture, manufacturing, or fire. Each sector board, in turn, constitutes several technical committees. It is the technical committees that, formally, approve a British Standard, which is then presented to the secretary of the supervisory sector board for endorsement of the fact that the technical committee has indeed completed a task for which it was constituted.
BSI Group currently has over 27, active standards. Products are commonly specified as meeting a particular British Standard, and in general, this can be done without any certification or independent testing.
The standard simply provides a shorthand way of claiming that certain specifications are met, while encouraging manufacturers to adhere to a common method for such a specification. The Kitemark can be used to indicate certification by BSI, but only where a Kitemark scheme has been set up around a particular standard. It is mainly applicable to safety and quality management standards.
Following the move on harmonisation of the standard in Europe, some British Standards are gradually superseded or replaced by the relevant European Standards EN. Status of standards[ edit ] Standards are continuously reviewed and developed and are periodically allocated one or more of the following status keywords. Current - the document is the current, most recently published one available. Obsolescent - indicating by amendment that the standard is not recommended for use for new equipment, but needs to be retained to provide for the servicing of equipment that is expected to have a long working life, or due to legislative issues.
Partially replaced - the standard has been partially replaced by one or more other standards. Proposed for confirmation - the standard is being reviewed and it has been proposed that it is confirmed as the current standard. Proposed for obsolescence - the standard is being reviewed and it has been proposed that it is made obsolescent. Proposed for withdrawal - the standard is being reviewed and it has been proposed that it is withdrawn. Revised - the standard has been revised.
Superseded - the standard has been replaced by one or more other standards. Under review - the standard is under review. Withdrawn - the document is no longer current and has been withdrawn. Work in hand - there is work being undertaken on the standard and there may be a related draft for public comment available. History[ edit ] BSI Group began in as the Engineering Standards Committee, led by James Mansergh , to standardise the number and type of steel sections, in order to make British manufacturers more efficient and competitive.
Over time the standards developed to cover many aspects of tangible engineering, and then engineering methodologies including quality systems, safety and security. Voltages for a. BS for cartridge fuses for a. Key egress. BS Specification for plastics waste traps BS Methods for rating and assessing industrial and commercial sound BS for residual current-operated circuit-breakers BS for industrial electrical power connectors BS Specification for 2-pin reversible plugs and shaver socket-outlets BS for weighing instruments for domestic cookery BS for colour-coordination in building construction BS for steel, concrete and composite bridges.
BS for graphical symbols and signs in building construction; including shape, colour and layout BS for anti-bandit glazing glazing resistant to manual attack BS for quality management, the ancestor of ISO BS for protection of trees during construction work BS for fire detection and alarm systems for buildings.
