  • Abstract:
    The document specifies the safety and ergonomic requirements and the corresponding test methods for visual danger signals and provides guidance for the design of the signals to be clearly perceived and differentiated as required in DIN EN ISO 12100-2. An Annex ZB was inserted to show the relation between the standard EN 981:1996 and the essential requirements of the machinery saftey directive 2006/42/EC. Technical changes were not made.
