There are more than 1.5 million industrial robots safely operating in factories worldwide, and the robotics industry can take pride in its impressive safety record. For over thirty years, RIA has taken a lead role in assuring that the robotics industry continues to proactively assess the safety environment and provide safety resources as robotic applications continue to expand. At the forefront of RIA’s leadership role in industrial robot safety is the development of the ANSI/RIA R15.06-2012 safety standard. The U.S. Occupational Heath and Safety Administration (OSHA) relies on industry standards such as ANSI/RIA R15.06-2012 when determining compliance with applicable safety regulations. RIA also offers ANSI-registered Technical Reports (TRs) to help you implement the R15.06 standards. Along with standard development, RIA also offers safety training and hosts an annual National Robot Safety Conference to provide specific guidance on robot and other machine safety standards.

RIA Certified Integrators must demonstrate aptitude in deploying safe robot systems. Refer to the RIA Certified Integrators page if you would like to find an integrator who can assist on your next project. Also, RIA Member Consultants can be a valuable resource in determining safety compliance on existing robot systems and providing risk assessment and risk mitigation services. You can locate an RIA Member Consultant using the "Browse By" feature in the upper right corner of Robotics Online.
