hazards arising from the use of these machines and the type of information on safe working practices
to be provided by the manufacturer are specified.
This part of ISO 11806 deals with all significant hazards, hazardous situations and hazardous events
relevant to these machines, as well as when they are used as intended and under conditions of misuse
which are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer.
