FEIN is happy to assist with operational safety and health protection.
1. Material Safety Data Sheets
Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) are an instrument for conveying safety-related information about substances and mixtures, including information from the relevant chemical safety report(s). They are intended to provide the professional user with the data and handling recommendations required when working with substances and mixtures in order to allow the necessary measures to be taken for health protection, safety at the workplace and environmental protection.
The current MSDS for FEIN products are available here.
2. Vibration values / sound emission values
The German Noise and Vibration Protection Ordinance protects employees from hazards caused by noise and vibration.
The current values for FEIN products are available here.
