Ergonomic standard
  • Abstract:
    This European Standard specifies safety requirements, and their verification for the design and construction of horizontal and vertical wedge splitters, designed to be used by one operator for splitting wood (short log and long log), irrespective of the nature of the power source used. The splitting process of a wedge splitter is designed as a single operatored control station. However it is possible, that more than one operator are working, e. g. loading and/or unloading the splitter. On a dual purpose circular saw for firewood/log splitting machine only the log splitter part of the machine is covered by this standard. For circular saws for firewood see EN 1870-6.This standard describes methods for the elimination or reduction of risks arising from their use. In addition, it specifies the type of information on safe working practices to be provided by the manufacturer.
