ABMA Safety Slips for Power Brushes

ANSI B165.1 - 2018 Public Review Underway

The Safety and Standards Committee of the American Brush Manufacturers Association reviews ANSI B165.1 - 2013 Power-Driven Brushing Tools - Safety Requirements for Design, Care, and Use on a regular, minimum 5 year cycle. In accordance with ANSI approved procedures, in 2018 this standard will be reviewed, revised, and updated through the Canvass Method with the support and interest of several organizations. The goal of this standard is to establish requirements for the design, care, and use of power-driven brushing tools in order to prevent injuries to those who use them.

Suggestions for improvement of the standard are welcomed and should be sent to the American Brush Manufacturers Association, 736 Main Ave, Suite 7, Durango, CO 81301-5479.
