Applies to woodworking machines with cutting tools and/or sanding tools when they are used as intended and under the conditions foreseen by the manufacturer.

This European Standard is applicable to woodworking machines with cutting tools and/or sanding tools as defined in 3.1, when they are used as intended and under the conditions foreseen by the manufacturer. This document deals with some but not all significant hazards, hazardous situations and events relevant to woodworking machines: those that are common to most of such machines and are listed in Clause 4. When a relevant part EN 691-2-XX does not exist, EN 691-1 can help to establish the requirements for the machine, but will not by itself provide a means of conforming to the relevant essential health and safety requirements of the Machinery Directive. In this case a risk assessment should be performed. NOTE 1 Reasonably foreseeable misuse of machines is dealt with in the relevant parts EN 691-2-XX. This document is not applicable to: - machines set up on a bench or a table similar to a bench, which are intended to carry out work in a stationary position, capable of being lifted by one person by hand, having a mass not exceeding 25 kg; the bench can also be an integrated part of the machine if it consists of hinged legs which can be extended down; NOTE 2 A relevant part EN 691-2-XX may define different criteria for delimiting the Scope. NOTE 3 Transportable electrically driven machines excluded by the Scope of this document are covered by the requirements of EN 61029-1:2009 and parts of EN 61029-2-XX. - hand held woodworking machines (hand held motor operated tools) or any adaptation permitting their use in a different mode, i.e. bench mounting. NOTE 4 Driven hand held motor operated tools are covered by EN 60745-1:2009 and parts of EN 60745-2-XX. NOTE 5 Machines for capturing and extracting dust are covered by EN 12779:2004+A1:2009. This document is not applicable to woodworking machines which are manufactured before the date of its publication as EN. NOTE 6 This document covers also woodworking machines which fulfil the criteria of the Machinery Directive, Annex IV.
