ANSI/RIA R15.06-2012

Industrial Robots and Robot Systems - Safety Requirements

This part of [the standard] specifies requirements and guidelines for the inherent safe design, protective measures and information for use of industrial robots. It describes basic hazards associated with robots and provides requirements to eliminate, or adequately reduce, the risks associated with these hazards.


RIA TR R15.306-2016

Task-based Risk Assessment Methodology

The 2012 R15.06 standard requires that a "risk assessment" of the robot system be completed in order to comply with the standard. TR 306 describes one method of risk assessment that would comply with the R15.06 requirements. The 2016 version of TR 306 has been updated since the original version was published in 2014.


ANSI/RIA R15.06 / ANSI B11.0 / ANSI B11.19 - Industrial Robots and Machinery Safety Package

ANSI/RIA R15.06 / ANSI B11.0 / ANSI B11.19 - Industrial Robots and Machinery Safety Package

The ANSI/RIA R15.06 / ANSI B11.0 / ANSI B11.19 - Industrial Robots and Machinery Safety Package provides the foundation to assess the risk associated with industrial robots and robot systems and to provide safeguarding of this machinery. It also provides requirements for industrial robot manufacture, remanufacture and rebuild, robot system integration/installation, and methods of safeguarding to enhance the safety of personnel associated with the use of robots and robot systems. ANSI/RIA R15.06 / ANSI B11.0 / ANSI B11.19 - Industrial Robots and Machinery Safety Package includes:

 
  • ANSI/RIA R15.06-2012
  •  
  • ANSI B11.0-2015 (Format 1)
  •  
  • ANSI B11.19-2010


RIA TR R15.406-2014

Safeguarding

TR 406 explains how to design a system of safeguards to protect human workers in an industrial environment that also contains robot system(s). This document contains greater detail than in the original 2012 R15.06 standard document. The TR 406 document as published in 2014 continues to be the current active version.


ANSI/RIA R15.06 / ANSI/RIA/ISO 10218 / RIA TR R15.206 - Industrial Robots Safety Package

ANSI/RIA R15.06, ANSI/RIA/ISO 10218 and RIA TR R15.206 - HISTORICAL PACKAGE

The ANSI/RIA R15.06 / ANSI/RIA/ISO 10218 / RIA TR R15.206 - Industrial Robots Safety Package provides the fundamentals for industrial robots and systems as it pertains to the safety requirements. The safety requirements are applicable to manufacturers, integrators, installers and personnel. The ANSI/RIA R15.06 / ANSI/RIA/ISO 10218 / RIA TR R15.206 - Industrial Robots Safety Package includes:

 
  • ANSI/RIA R15.06-2012
  •  
  • ANSI/RIA/ISO 10218-1-2007 (Historical Document)
  •  
  • RIA TR R15.206-2008 (Historical Document)


RIA TR R15.506-2014

Applicability of ANSI/RIA R15.06-2012 for Existing Industrial Robot Applications

TR 506 explains how to take the 2012 R15.06 standard into account for existing robot systems, rather than the all-new robot installation that is the primary topic of the 2012 R15.06. The TR 506 document as published in 2014 continues to be the current active version.


ANSI/RIA R15.06 and ISO 13849 - Safety of Machinery and Industrial Robots Package

ANSI/RIA R15.06, ISO 13849-1 and ISO 13849-2

The ANSI/RIA R15.06 and ISO 13849 - Safety of Machinery and Industrial Robots Package provides the safety requirements and guidance on the design and integration of safety related parts of control systems. It specifies the characteristics to identify the performance level required for carrying out safety functions associated with industrial robots and robot systems. It also provides provides requirements for industrial robot manufacture, remanufacture and rebuild; robot system integration/installation; and methods of safeguarding to enhance the safety of personnel associated with the use of robots and robot systems. ANSI/RIA R15.06 and ISO 13849 - Safety of Machinery and Industrial Robots Package includes: 

  • ANSI/RIA R15.06-2012

RIA TR R15.606-2016

Technical Report - Industrial Robots and Robot Systems - Safety Requirements - Collaborative Robots

This Technical Specification specifies safety requirements for collaborative industrial robot systems and the work environment, and supplements the requirements and guidance on collaborative industrial robot operation given in ISO 10218-1 and ISO 10218-2 [ANSI/RIA R15.06-2012].This Technical Specification applies to industrial robot systems as described in ISO 10218-1 and ISO 10218-2 [ANSI/RIA R15.06-2012]. It does not apply to non-industrial robots, although the safety principles presented can be useful to other areas of robotics.


RIA TR R15.106-2006

Teaching Multiple Robots

The purpose of this technical report is to provide interpretation of certain provisions of ANSI/RIA R15.06-1999 and to present examples of current industry practices for teaching (programming) multiple industrial robots that share a common safeguarded space. This information is in addition to the requirements contained in ANSI/RIA R15.06-1999 and the committee considers the examples to comply with the safety standard.
