As a follow up to the 25th annual National Robot Safety Conference in mid-October, the Robotic Industries Association is looking for ways to deliver safety information that are less dry than the typical safety presentation. For example, yesterday the group posted a graphic that details both the history of workplace safety regulations as well as common violations and recent examples of large fines.
“There are a number of factories across the country that have safety regulations posted, but the issue is that’s as far as it goes,” says Ashley Walter, who helped put together the graphic for the group. “We felt that this would link the severity of the policies to those directly affected.”
