Robot Safety Resources

There are more than 2.7 million industrial robots safely operating in factories worldwide, and the robotics industry can take pride in its impressive safety record. For nearly forty years, A3 Robotics – formerly the Robotic Industries Association – has taken a lead role in assuring that the robotics industry continues to proactively assess the safety environment and provide safety resources as robotic applications continue to expand. At the forefront of A3 Robotics’ leadership role in industrial robot safety is the development of the ANSI/RIA R15.06-2012 safety standard. A3 Robotics has also recently introduced a new safety standard covering the growing presence of industrial mobile robots, ANSI/RIA R15.08-1-2020.

The U.S. Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) relies on industry standards such as ANSI/RIA R15.06-2012 when determining compliance with applicable safety regulations. A3 Robotics also offers ANSI-registered Technical Reports (TRs) to help you implement the R15.06 standards.

Along with standard development, A3 Robotics also offers safety training and hosts an annual International Robot Safety Conference to provide specific guidance on robot and other machine safety standards.
