Safety of woodworking machines. Circular sawing machines. Circular saw-benches/up-cutting cross-cut sawing machines

Status : Current   Published : July 2002



This document deals with all significant hazards, hazardous situations and events as listed in Clause 4 which are relevant to circular saw benches/up-cutting cross-cut sawing machines, hereinafter referred to as "machines", designed to cut solid wood, chipboard, fibreboard, plywood and also these materials where they are covered with plastic edging and/or plastic/light alloy laminates. This European Standard does not apply to: hand-held motor-operated electric tools or any adaptation permitting their use in a different mode, i.e. bench mounting; machines set up on a bench or a table similar to a bench, which is intended to carry out work in a stationary position, capable of being lifted by one person by hand. For Computer Numerically Controlled (CNC) machines this European Standard does not cover hazards related to Electro-Magnetic Compatibility (EMC). This European Standard is primarily directed at machines which are manufactured after the date of issue of this European Standard.
