Through the Fatality Assessment and Control Evaluation (FACE) Program, NIOSH conducts on-site investigations of occupational fatalities, including those related to robots, and supports similar efforts by state partners.

The following publications are the products of our Cooperative State partners and are presented here in their original unedited form from the states. The findings and conclusions in these products are those of the individual Cooperative State partner and do not necessarily reflect the views or policy of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health.
