Robotic safety standards have been around for a few decades and their importance is growing as they became more common in manufacturing.
High-noise manufacturing environments are already difficult places to communicate, but COVID-19 and social distancing make it even harder. Learn how to overcome this challenge.
Manufacturing facilities have unique challenges because of constant ambient background noise that limits effective communication. Practice and investing in the right technology can help mitigate these problems.
Many of the lessons and changes applied to manufacturing after the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 can be applied to the growing challenge manufacturers face with industrial cybersecurity. Three keys to improving cybersecurity are highlighted.
