Abstract The French National Research and Safety Institute publishes regularly, in its "Cahiers de notes documentaires", technical data sheets on safety aspects of various machines (saws, surface planers, spindle moulders, lathes, grinding mills, milling machines, etc.). This general annex lists the French laws, regulations and other statutory instruments, and the recommendations and standards concerning these machines applicable in France. The list is followed by technical considerations (workplace layout and location of these machines; ergonomic workplace design; use of cutting fluids; electric, hydraulic and pneumatic equipment; sweep guards and guarding devices operating by electrical contact; stop buttons and emergency stop devices; maintenance; periodic checks).
