Robotic Systems Risk Assessments

An effective RA starts with including knowledgeable employees with expertise in the operations, specific robotic application, RA methodology, and any specialized experience. The assessment team identifies all of the tasks to be performed as part of the robot operations and maintenance, with special attention given to any tasks that may be particularly hazardous or complicated. RAs are completed for hazardous situations associated with each stage of the robot development (i.e., assembly, integration, operation, and maintenance). The potential for harm and likelihood of occurrence of each hazardous situation is identified along with the most appropriate risk reduction technique. The documented RA is distributed to and accepted by the team and all affected employees, ensuring that all personnel involved with the robot operations and maintenance understand the associated hazards and safeguarding.
Engineers Week 2023
We asked a few our engineers to answer the following:
Why did you get into
How do we/engineers make an impact on the greater community
Today, EWeek is a formal coalition of more than 70 engineering, education, and cultural societies, and more than 50 corporations and government agencies. Dedicated to raising public awareness of engineers' positive contributions to quality of life, EWeek promotes recognition among parents, teachers, and students of the importance of a technical education and a high level of math, science, and technology literacy, and motivates youth, to pursue engineering careers in order to provide a diverse and vigorous engineering workforce. Each year, EWeek reaches thousands of schools, businesses, and community groups across the U.S.
How to Design for Effective Situation Awareness and Operator Response to Abnormal Situations

Designing for effective situation awareness and operator response to abnormal situations can be addressed by considering the following four techniques:

2. Developing skill-based intuition
3. Creating safe habits
4. Using “nudge theory”
