This document specifies the safety requirements and measures for circular saw benches with or without sliding table and/or demountable power feed unit and capable of continuous production use, also known as “table saws” (in the USA), hereinafter referred to also as “machines”. The machines are designed to cut wood and material with similar physical characteristics to wood. It deals with all significant hazards, hazardous situations and events as listed in Annex A relevant to the machines when operated, adjusted and maintained as intended and under the conditions foreseen by the manufacturer; reasonably foreseeable misuse has been considered too.
