ANSI SNT-101

ISANTA is active in aiding in the development of safety standards, and has its own safety standard ANSI SNT-101-2015: Safety Requirements for Portable, Compressed-Air-Actuated, Fastener-Driving Tools. This standard contains safety requirements for tool manufacturers, tool purchasers, and tool operators and is intended to provide safeguards for persons and property from accidental hazards arising from the use of air-actuated fastening tools. It is also intended to assist government and other regulatory bodies in the development, promulgation, and enforcement of appropriate safety directives.  This is the standard adopted in the USA. Users of the ISANTA website may view, print, download, or otherwise save copies of ANSI SNT-101-2015 for their own personal or internal business purposes.
