IEC 61477:2009 gives the minimum requirements relative to specification, manufacture, selection, application and maintenance of tools, devices and equipment for live working. It provides the type of information which is useful to skilled persons in order to make the use of tools, devices and equipment safer. This type of information includes: - the characteristics of tools, devices and equipment; - their conditions for use; - their conditions for maintenance; - their conditions for storage and transportation. Such information may be given in standards, manufacturer's instructions for use and in internal regulations set forth by companies for their own employees. Such information should be completed by work methods, which are excluded from the scope of this standard. This second edition of IEC 61477 cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2001, its Amendment 1 (2002) and Amendment 2 (2004). The contents of the corrigendum of April 2009 have been included in this copy.
