The Co-Workers of the Future

From performing delicate, life-saving surgery to making sushi and drilling mines, robots are increasingly a part of our daily lives. Loved by manufacturers, robots hold many benefits over human workers, since they are reliable, do not complain about working overtime or aches and pains, and are capable of performing endless tasks quickly and efficiently.

Adapting to a Safer Robotic Workforce

An Ounce of Prevention

While no one plans to get physically injured or exposed to dangerous working situations at their place of employment, getting hurt on the job is, unfortunately, a common occurrence. 2.8 million non-fatal workplace injuries were reported in 2019, as well as 888,220 nonfatal injuries and illnesses causing a private industry worker to miss at least one day of work, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). Preventing these types of injuries along with time missed — in fact, making a workplace as safe as possible — is imperative for all organizations. Unfortunately, the best of intentions don’t always lead to the best results.
