This conference was designed to take a close look at research and developments in industrial safety from a global perspective essential to understanding the interaction between the worker and automated machinery.
Automation has reduced the frequency of man-machine physical interaction; however, it has increased the complexity of human interventions. Therefore it is not always clear that when the degree of automation increases the amount of accidents decreases, although the average looks good. Accidents occur often during maintenance, troubleshooting and repairing and usually because the machine starts-up unexpectedly. These conditions of man-machine interface need better understanding and development of methods, means and tools to control them.
This conference is designed to take a close look at research and developments in industrial safety from a global perspective essential to understanding the interaction between the worker and automated machinery. The conference was of interest to work systems end-users, designers and occupational health & safety experts interested in the general theme of Machinery Safety in a Global Marketplace. The topics describe a non-exhaustive list of suggested themes. Other topics related to the scope were considered.
- Safety of machinery:
safety concepts and principles, design rules and strategy, maintenance of machinery
- Risk assessment:
Hazard identification, historic experience, mitigation, risk estimation and evaluation, assessment methodology, comparison of methodologies
- Practical applications/experiences:
accident investigation results, statistical analysis of accidental trends, economics of safety, considerations in systems safeguarding
- Training and supervision:
programs and results, organizational design and management, dissemination of knowledge
- Protective devices and systems:
human factors and design, protective and complementary protective measures, prevention of bypassing and defeating, man-machine interface, role of software as a safeguard, safety of robotics, safety-related field buses
- Control system designs and evaluations:
safety performance, safety-related control systems for cells/IMS, proactive safety design
- Innovation and the future:
human presence sensors (Vision, RFID), robots collaborating with humans, Integrated Manufacturing Systems, autonomous machines in the vicinity of a human
- International standardization:
international standardization in the safety of machinery, functional safety, safety integrity level; categories, SIL’s and PL’s, safety-related embedded software/firmware, reliability features of safety-related control systems
