Attendees at the Robotic Industries Association's (RIA) National Robot Safety Conference XXII will get a preview of the new R15.06 (2011) Robot Safety Standard draft during its first public release at the event, held September 27-29, 2010 at the Indianapolis Marriott East. The revised edition of the standard is based on the new ISO 10218 standard, which is in its final stages of completion. "There is much yet to do, but the end game is coming into sight. We are looking forward to this culmination of work," says RIA's director of standards development, Jeff Fryman. The conference will feature sessions on the new R15.06 Robot Safety Standard, as well as how to use robots to improve safety and market position. Additional sessions include an OSHA view on robot safety, safeguarding and safety controls. Case studies, a standards committee panel discussion and a safety primer will also be highlights of the conference. The agenda is posted on the association's website at
