Live 30-Minute Mini-Webinar Focusing on Human-Robot Safety

Skyrocketing demand for automation has dramatically increased the number of robots deployed by industry to over 1.5 million. Meanwhile, collaborative robots or “co-bots” are making their way into new work environments, such as light manufacturing, fulfillment centers, and agriculture. Because no technology can be made foolproof, maintaining safety in environments where humans and robots work together has become a critical, but misunderstood issue for many managers who are worried they may not be keeping pace with the latest codes and regulations.

To address these concerns, Rockford Systems, LLC. announced today that it will host a live, complimentary mini-webinar titled “Safeguarding Basics: Robots” on Tuesday, February 13, from 9:00 AM to 9:30 AM Central Time. It will be led by Roger Harrison, Director of Training for Rockford Systems, and an expert on OSHA, CFR, ANSI and NFPA safety standards.

Attending the mini webinar will help safety professionals better understand how to safeguard robots to meet or exceed OSHA 29 CFR regulations and ANSI/RIA R15.06-2012 safety standards. In so doing, attendees will learn how to keep their company in absolute compliance, reduce insurance costs, and help prevent employee accidents when working with or around robotic machinery.

This informative, free webinar will specifically cover:

  • The latest changes to ANSI/RIA R15.06-2012 including the requirement for a risk assessment for robot safety
  • How to provide appropriate safeguarding devices to integrate robots into factories and work areas
  • Understanding the difference between a service robot and a collaborative robot
  • How accidents occur when robots are deployed improperly or used carelessly

The mini-webinar will run approximately 20-25 minutes with another 5-10 minutes dedicated to a question and answer session with Mr. Harrison.
