Robot Safety Awareness Webinar
by RIA Staff
Robotic Industries Association Posted 08/30/2010
A new robot safety standard is set to take effect in 2011. Manufacturers have already started producing robots that are compliant. Users and integrators now must consider guidelines that are harmonized with ISO. For more than a decade, OSHA has referred to the ANSI/RIA R15.06-1999 Robot Safety Standard but times change and so has the standard.
This webinar gives you a chance to hear about the changes directly from RIA before they go into effect. Additional training is offered by RIA at the 22nd annual National Robot Safety Conference (September 27-29, 2010, Indianapolis, IN), which previews the R15.06 (2011) Robot Safety Standard Draft in more detail.
