1 Scope

1.1 This part of the S613 standard series defines a performance test for a cab for use in a risk management program in contaminated environments as part of an Occupational Health and Safety Management System (OHSMS). This document is intended to be a guide for engineers and field technicians who are responsible for cabs in agricultural applications.

1.2 While this standard provides guidance for use of these systems and defines a way to test the level of protection provided, as defined by the OHSMS. It is expected that other tests may provide cabs that are as well suited for this purpose; it is up to the user to demonstrate equivalency.

1.3 The S613 standard series is not intended to qualify cabs for use in poison gas or oxygen depleted environments, such as where an oxygen supply respirator is required per the product label and therefore are not covered by this standard.
