The European Standard EN 1083-2 about Safety Requirements in the use of Power-driven brushes states the safety instructions that all brush operators must observe. These requirements and common safety practices will reduce the likelihood of physical injury and brush fail:

Fixing the brush
While fixing a brush to a machine, pay attention to the attachment of the brush:
Brushes NOT mounted properly or securely can cause irreparable damage
Brush usage recommendations
At JAZ, a primary focus is using our brushes in a safe manner. Therefore, we recommend taking the following measures into account before starting to use them.
Pay special attention to power brushes that are going to be mounted on electric and/or pneumatic tools and read the instruction manual for the power tools and the working conditions of the power brushes.
The brushing must be performed with wire ends. Excessive pressure causes over-bending of the wires, increasing their fatigue and therefore, causing a premature breaking, reducing significantly their working life.
If you need a higher removal capacity, instead of higher pressure on the brush, we suggest the following:
