Abstract
Several robot system safety techniques were reviewed and a procedure analysis was presented for the planning, installation, and operation stages of adding a robot to the workplace. The analysis covered safety measures that should be taken, risks of not taking them, causes of the risks, and corrective or preventive measures. The resulting safety measure checklist can serve as a procedure for implementing current standards or guidelines. The procedure analysis provided a comprehensive checklist of the safety considerations for planning to use, install and operate a robot in the workplace. The implementation of these procedures would reduce accidents and provide redundant protection to the operators. The need for further research concerning the safe use of robots was noted, including system safety analysis for manufacturing systems, human error prediction and prevention, and robot performance evaluation procedures. A flow chart for the procedural analysis for robot system safety was included.
