PROMOTING SAFETY LEADERSHIP: ROBOTICS AND AUTOMATION 

The Industry 4.0 led industrial environment is seeing another wave of automation and roboticisation of manufacturing processes, even beyond the extensive developments we have seen to date.

Robots that talk to one another, robots that are increasingly autonomous and apply AI to decision making in more ways than ever before. As part of the event’s speaker program, running 9 – 12 May 2017, Sustainable Manufacturing Futures Robotics and Advanced Technology Safety Consultant Dr Rahul Walia will discuss the impact of robotics and automation on safety in industrial environments.

This session, to be held on Wednesday 10 May 2017 from 2:25pm – 3:05pm, will provide an overview of this growing area of concern, discussing topics such as:

  • Exploring robotics safety in structured and unstructured environments
  • Recommendations for better defining and regulating robotics safety
  • Assessment and mitigation frameworks and training and transition
  • Case examples of robot safety management

Following this, delegates will be able to hear the latest robot safety updates and standards from leading experts in the field.

The Safety First Conference & Expo is a dedicated event showcasing the latest technologies, products and services to improve safety standards and compliance and reduce safety expenditure.

Running from 9 – 12 May 2017, the event will be co-located with National Manufacturing Week, Austech and ISSA Cleaning & Hygiene Expo which are each comprehensive, free-to-attend opportunities for attendees.

Visitors will enjoy over the three days a number of free educational conference sessions.

Safety First Conference & Expo has grown from a large zone at National Manufacturing Week to a fully featured exhibition and conference area.  It debuted in Melbourne at National Manufacturing Week 2015 and attracted 663 visitors and delegates.
