1.1 This standard specifies the safety requirements and measures to be adopted by persons undertaking the design, construction and supply (including installation, setting–up, maintenance, and repair) of machines whose primary intended use is for sawing cold metal (ferrous and non-ferrous), or material partly of cold metal, by means of a saw blade. 1.2 This standard takes into account the intended use, reasonably foreseeable misuse, machine setting and blade fitting, maintenance and cleaning, and their effects on the safety of operators and other exposed persons. It presumes access to the machine from all directions at floor level and addresses both normal operation and unexpected or unintended starting. 1.3 This standard applies to the ancillary devices which form an integral part of the machine. Where such devices are not an integral part of the machine, the designer, manufacturer or supplier of the installation should take into account their intended use, and should make provision for the safe linking of such devices with the machine. 1.4 This standard applies to (metal) sawing machines which are manufactured after the date of publication by CEN of this standard.
