  • The operator's hand or hands
  • A suspension, e. g. a balancer.

BS EN 792-9 applies to hand-held, non-electric power tools fitted with collets and used for grinding and surface finishing and chamfering using mounted points, burrs and files and small wire brushes mounted on shafts. This part lists the significant hazards caused by such power tools and specifies safety requirements valid for different aspects of safety during their foreseeable lifetime.

Grinders without collets for use with cones and plugs with threaded inserts are covered by BS EN 792-7.

  • Angle die grinders
  • Reciprocating files
  • Rotary files
