To design and implement a safe and productive robotic application effectively, personnel must be formally trained as to the robot's type, specifications, control system, features, and input/output structure. This provides them with the appropriate information needed during the design phase. They should be totally aware of their own facility's safety requirements, OSHAct standards, and the manufacturer's safety features available on the equipment. This knowledge then must be used in the design of the perimeter guarding and remote interface panels to be used in the application. The key factor of a successful and safe application is the proper indoctrination and training of all involved personnel. Finally, refresher seminars should be provided to keep all involved personnel up-to-date.
