Robot Safety: Decoding and Applying CSA Z434
Robots can perform dangerous, demanding and dirty jobs that are impossible or unsafe for people to perform. Hazards associated with robots are well recognized, but the sources of the hazards are frequently unique to a particular robot system.
This full day course will help participants understand and apply the key requirements of the CSA robot safety standard (Z434) to their workplace, and to:
Robots can perform dangerous, demanding and dirty jobs that are impossible or unsafe for people to perform. They are also increasingly being used to improve productivity, quality and global competitiveness. Hazards associated with robots are well recognized, but the sources of the hazards are frequently unique to a particular robot system.
CAN/CSA- Z434 Industrial robots and robot systems is a voluntary standard that applies to the manufacture, remanufacture, rebuild, installation, safeguarding, maintenance and repair, testing and start-up, and personnel training requirements for industrial robots and robot systems. The 3rd edition of the standard went through extensive review and revision and was released in 2014.
This flexible and interactive on-site course is based on the revised CSA Z434 standard. It consists of modular, guided discussions and conceptual application that can be adapted to meet the specific requirements of your workplace. Also included are site-specific examples, demonstrations and/or walkthroughs and a copy of the CSA Z434 standard.
Of additional benefit is the nature of the CSA Z434 standard which incorporates international design standards. This means that companies with international operations can be consistent from country to country in the design and application of their robotic cells.
Developed by Workplace Safety and Prevention Services in collaboration with the CSA Group. Training is facilitated by a technical expert qualified in robotics.
Upon completion, you will be able to
This training is suitable for any organization in the industrial robotics supply chain including installers and end-users.
This course is delivered in a public classroom and/or can also be delivered in an on-site location.
