Standardization relating to transport and traffic

Occupational health and safety is particularly important in the field of transport and traffic, as attention is often focused on the passengers or goods to be transported rather than on the workplaces of the employees. Moreover, neither the workplaces legislation nor the German Ordinance on Industrial Safety and Health is applicable to these workplaces, as means of transport are excluded from the scope of the superordinate European directives. The Machinery Directive 2006/42/EU also excludes both motor vehicles and means of transport by air, on water and on rail networks from its scope.

KAN is addressing the following topics in the area of transport and traffic:

Railways/rail transport

Bicycles/pedelecs

Ambulances
