    1.1 This specification specifies minimum requirements for the design, performance, testing, and certification of protective clothing and protective devices designed to provide cut resistance protection to the legs of operators of power chainsaws.2

    1.2 The objective of this specification is to prescribe fit, function, and performance criteria for protective clothing and protective devices that, when worn by chainsaw operators, are intended to reduce the severity of leg injuries caused by contact with a running power saw chain.

    1.3 This standard is not intended to serve as a detailed manufacturing or purchasing specification, but can be referenced in purchase contracts to ensure that minimum performance requirements are met.

    1.4 Controlled laboratory tests used to determine compliance with the performance requirements of this standard shall not be deemed as establishing performance levels for all situations to which chainsaw operators may be exposed.

    1.5 Mandatory requirements are indicated by the use of “shall”; recommendations and advisory information are indicated by the use of “should.”

    1.6 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
