Best Practices for Warnings for the Automation and Robotic Industries
Posted by Clarion Safety Systems | 13th Oct 2016
With advances in automation and robotics technology, especially in recent decades, the modern workplace has evolved. The problem is, in many cases, the warnings used on safety labels on products and safety signs in facilities have not.
That’s why here at Clarion, we’re excited to be working with our partners in safety at the Robotic Industries Association (RIA), helping to promote best practices and sharing industry expertise in this area. This includes being a part of next week’s RIA-hosted annual National Robot Safety Conference, taking place October 17-19 in Cincinnati, Ohio.
RIA drives innovation, growth, and safety in manufacturing and service industries through education, promotion, and advancement of robotics, related automation technologies, and companies delivering integrated solutions. Its National Robot Safety Conference will offer sessions and workshops that examine key issues in robot safety and provide an in-depth overview of current industry standards.
What are today’s best practices for safety labels and signs in the automation and robotics industries? That’s an area where Clarion has an unmatched level of expertise. Our safety label and safety sign systems are state-of-the-art; they incorporate the most advanced symbols, color-coding and formatting principles. We also focus on uniformity between product safety labels and workplace safety signs. When it comes to warnings, this consistency means familiarity and increased comprehension, all of which are part of effective safety communication.
At next week’s conference, we’re looking forward to talking with engineers, robot system integrators, technicians and other manufacturing automation professionals to learn about their work and the ways Clarion expertise can help to increase safety and reduce risk.
