Robot Risk Assessment

The Robotics Industry Association (RIA) has taken the lead role in assuring that the robotics industry continues to proactively assess the safety environment and provide safety resources as robotic applications expand.


The development of the ANSI/RIA R15.06-2012 safety standard includes the adoption of ISO 10218:2011 Parts 1 and 2, providing the industry with guidance on the proper use of the safety features embedded into robots, along with how to safely integrate robots into factories and work areas.

Assessing the risks of industrial robotic technology is the first step in achieving robotic safety in a factory setting. A proper risk assessment typically includes two steps: risk analysis and risk evaluation.

Risk analysis typically requires three different steps: determining the limits of the robotic machinery, identifying the potential hazards involved in production, and estimating the risk of identified hazards.
