Safety Requirements for Procurement, Maintenance, and Use of Handheld Powered Tools
- Aerospace Standard
Updated Table A1 notional guidance on weighting factors for tool evaluation to include physical safety factors (factors which can create an acute injury such as electrical safety or physical disintegration). (Note that the table in the original version of AS6228 had 90 possible points versus 100 possible points.)
Include basic guidance for safety in purchase of appendages (consumables/removable tools).
Provide guidance for dust control by adding an appendix which was not included in initial version of AS6228.
Developed a supporting SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR6916) to serve as a layman’s guide for application of the standard. This standard and AIR6916 are being published concurrently.
Update references and links to websites, as appropriate.
Deleted some material deemed too basic for users of this standard.
Data Sets - Support Documents
The SAE EG-1B1 Powered Hand Tools - Productivity, Ergonomics and Safety Committee addresses factors that support evaluation, procurement, use and support of powered hand tools that contribute to integrating safety, health and productivity into procurement and process management. It complements the SAE EG-1B Aerospace Hand Tool Committee which addresses all facets of aerospace hand tools and tool kits in support of equipment-design, maintenance, and in-service experience. The rationale for formation and immediate focus is development of an aerospace standard AS6228 that will provide programmatic guidance for sustainable tool evaluation and procurement that will educate tool users and program managers while promoting economic effectiveness and efficiency. The group is comprised of government, original equipment manufacturers, and users dedicated to creating, preparing and maintaining all relevant specifications, standards and requirements for aerospace propulsion system support equipment.
