TUV Rheinland of North America Announces a New, Free Robotics Seminar Series Across the U.S.

During each seminar, Ryan Braman will share his extensive experience with robot safety. Ryan sits on the ANSI/RIA R15.06 and R15.08 committees where he participates with standards development and research activities. He is uniquely positioned to help you understand what is needed to build and purchase safe, compliant machines.

The industrial safety landscape has drastically changed over the last few years. With advanced technology comes additional safety risks. "Robots cannot be allowed to hurt anyone," said Ryan Braman, Test Engineering Manager at TUV Rheinland. "In this rapidly growing field, you have to keep a close eye on the safety regulations at all times - particularly when it comes to any effects on the human body."


Adherence to the safety standards used by the Robotics industry today reduce the risk of personal injury, financial penalties and provide a better working environment for all. In order to increase understanding of the robotics safety landscape, TUV Rheinland has decided to host a series of half-day seminars across the United States focused on safety requirements for robotics.

During each seminar, Ryan Braman will share his extensive experience with robot safety. Ryan sits on the ANSI/RIA R15.06 and R15.08 committees where he participates with standards development and research activities. He is uniquely positioned to help you understand what is needed to build and purchase safe, compliant machines.
