Guide about Attachments for demolition and recycling




The Guide about Attachments for demolition and recycling is created with two main objectives: produce a basic and descriptive publication in question-answer format and give a general overview of the attachments, explaining their basic characteristics, their functionalities, general requirements, how this equipment should be managed, how to use them in safe working conditions and the regulatory framework that is applicable.

This descriptive guide is intended to serve as a reference document for professionals to these sectors, especially contractors and end-users who carry out activities related to demolition and/or recycling.

This publication is produced by the European Demolition Association Secretariat, with the contributions and collaboration of the members of the working group on Attachments.
