1.1 This document applies to concrete compactors and smoothing machines as defined in Clause 3 and illus-trated in Annex A and Annex B.
This standard also applies for hand-held motor-operated concrete vibrators as defined in EN 60745-2-12:2003, but with the additional safety requirements for electronically controlled systems as defined in this standard (see 22.214.171.124).
1.2 This document does not deal with auxiliary equipment which provides the energy for internal and external vibrators, e.g. air compressors, hydraulic power sources and voltage transformers. This document does not apply to remote-controlled or portable smoothing machines and self-acting (robotic) smoothing machines.
1.3 This document deals with all significant hazards, hazardous situations and events relevant to concrete com-pactors and smoothing machines, when they are used as intended and under the conditions foreseen by the manu-facturer (see Clause 4). This document specifies the appropriate technical measures to eliminate or reduce risks arising from the significant hazards.
This standard also includes measures to consider reasonably foreseeable misuse.
