Join the latest episode of Universal Robots’ 2022 cross-Canada webinar series, Collaborative Robot Safety – What you need to know! The free webinar airs live on August 24 at 2 pm ET.

Collaborative robots continue to enable manufacturers to get to market faster, manage costs of automation projects and engage employees in more meaningful work. But a challenge and requirement for all robot projects is safety. Navigating through legislation and industry safety standards can be a very challenging and frustrating process!

Join our moderator Jim Beretta and instructor Dave Smith as they share insights into the intent and practical application of the various requirements for collaborative robots and collaborative technology installations in Canadian factories and distribution centres.


This episode is part of Universal Robots’ 2022 cross-Canada webinar series where we will showcase industry experts, use cases from distributors, integrators and Canadian manufacturers using collaborative robots to painlessly solve automation, distribution and ergonomics issues within their facilities.

What you will learn:

  • Use cases: real life examples of manufacturers installing cobots
  • Who do you need involved in evaluating the risks and process?
  • The Pre Start Health and Safety Reviews (PSR) and how to implement them
  • The practical approach to risk assessment: Why is there so much mystery in the risk assessment process?
