Dutch to English translations [PRO]
Dutch term or phrase: luchtgereedschap
Context:

I am currently translating a Risk Inventory and Evaluation Form for a construction company, and am having trouble with translating the term "luchtgereedschap".
The risk involved = strained arms and hands, cause = using "luchtgereedschap"

Any suggestions welcome!

Thanks,

Pikey

Explanation:
people working at construction sites usually call these tools just "air tools", very straightforward.

Officially it's "pneumatic tools" but this is not the vocabulary of building personnel.
