See ISO 4414:1998 and EN 983:1996 for safety requirements covering the installation and use of pneumatic equipment.
A Health and Safety Guide has been produced which covers the use of pneumatic equipment.
The Health & Safety Executive Guide HS(G) 39 states "requirements for quick-acting couplings apply to most percussive and vibrating air tools, which may be fixed or handheld. If a quick-acting coupling socket is fitted at the hose end adjacent to the tool, the plug should not be screwed directly into the inlet port but should be fitted onto a short isolation hose (0.5m to 1m long), thus isolating the plug and socket from the tool vibration."
The International Standard (ISO 6150:1998) recommends a minimum of 300mm of flexible hose to be used between a vibrating tool and a quick-acting coupling.
