An overview of the analysis which should be undertaken with regard to safety where robotic systems are used. Looks at accidents associated with these systems and the legislation covering their operation in the workplace. Outlines general guidelines for robotic system design, implementation and maintenance and the various factors which should be considered with regard to safety. Describes a proposed International Electrotechnical Commission [IEC] standard for safety-related systems and concludes that if a systematic approach is taken concerning safety from inial design through to installation operation and maintenance, then accidents can be minimized.
