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 10:00 AM to 10:30 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.
