FEM releases warning signals guidelines

By Laura Hatton13 November 2013

The FEM Product Group Cranes and Lifting Equipment has published the FEM 5.014 Document Guideline - External Warning signals of the Rated Capacity Limiter, speed reductions and Event Recorder for mobile cranes.

The guidelines cover standard design rules for warning signs, such as load status, on the outside of the crane. The warning signs are intended for people working in the surroundings of cranes and who are not necessarily informed about the workings and warning features of the equipment.

This document applies to mobile cranes and is a complementary rule to the European Standard EN13000:2010 Crane – Mobile Crane.

The document is available on the FEM website: www.fem-eur.com
