What You Will Learn

AMRs (Autonomous Mobile Robots) are growing in popularity in industrial environments because of their easy implementation and high return on investment. Up until now there has been no regulation for these robotics in live facilities, leaving the bulk of the risk on the AMR customers and their employees. As with all large industrial machinery, accidents can be expensive, damaging for a reputation, and dangerous for your employees.

ANSI R15.08, written by the Robotic Industries Association (RIA), is the newly released safety standard specifically for AMRs in industrial environments like manufacturing facilities, distribution and fulfillment centers, and warehouses, that provides guidelines to remove the risk from the end-user and place the burden of proof on the manufacturer and integrators.

In this session, Melonee Wise, RIA board member and member of the R15.08 drafting subcommittee, will walk through which industrial robots fall under the purview of these new rules, the key points of the R15.08 guideline, and the questions you should ask vendors to ensure they meet these new regulations to keep your business, facilities, and employees safe as per OSHA recommendations.
