Safety authorities issue warnings to prevent robotic work injury

Robotics is no longer limited to factories and other industrial facilities. Robots are now also used in the construction industry in Arizona and elsewhere. Following two separate incidents of a robot-related work injury, safety authorities say each new project requires a thorough analysis to identify potential hazards and risk zones.

Strict rules exist for respirator use to prevent work injury

Workers in Arizona whose jobs expose them dangerous airborne contaminants must be protected. Employers must establish engineering controls such as scrubbing to remove contaminants and providing adequate ventilation to limit exposure, but if such controls are not sufficient, respirators must be provided to prevent work injury. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has a respiratory protection standard that mandates medical evaluation of employees before they wear respirators.
