Dear Mr. Deyle:
This is in response to your letter of February 15, 1982 concerning OSHA standards for pneumatic demolition tools.
The OSHA standards in 29 CFR 1926.302(b) for pneumatic power tools does not regulate the assembly of components such as backhead construction criteria for hand held pavement breakers or other pneumatic demolition tools. However, all pneumatic tools must be designed and used in accordance with good engineering practices to assure the safety of exposed employees using the equipment.
If I may be of further assistance, please feel free to contact me.
