Hand-held non-electric power tools -- Safety requirements -- Part 11: Nibblers and shears


ISO 11148-11:2011 specifies safety requirements for hand-held non-electric power tools (hereinafter "nibblers and shears") with a reciprocating movement for nibbling and shearing. The nibblers and shears can be powered by compressed air or hydraulic fluid and are intended to be used by one operator and supported by the operator's hand or hands, with or without a suspension, e.g. a balancer.

ISO 11148-11:2011 is applicable to nibblers and shears.

ISO 11148-11:2011 is not applicable to special requirements and modifications of nibblers and shears for the purpose of mounting them in a fixture.

ISO 11148-11:2011 deals with all significant hazards, hazardous situations or hazardous events relevant to nibblers and shears when they are used as intended and under conditions of misuse which are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer, with the exception of the use of nibblers and shears in potentially explosive atmospheres.
