Making Steel Safer: Achieving an Accident-Free Workplace Through Robotics

Over the years steelmakers have focused efforts to reduce their accident ratio by improving safety management, exchanging best practices and using appropriate PPE; nevertheless most of the activities are still performed manually by operators with direct exposure to harsh environments and dangers. To achieve a zero-accident working environment, some producers have introduced different technologies and robotic applications. This session will focus on the evolution of robotics in the steel industry including challenges, solutions and future developments.
