(RoboticsBusinessReview)  The Robotic Industries Association (RIA), North America’s leading robotics trade group, signed an alliance partnership today with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) to focus on robot safety.
“RIA has a long history of helping to keep around industrial robotics,” said Jeff Burnstein, President, RIA. “We developed the first American national robot safety standard, R15.06, in 1986 and we’ve kept it up-to-date since then. This new alliance with OSHA and NIOSH will help us to continue advancing worker safety as more robots enter the workplace.”
