The Impact of Industrial Automation on Worker Safety

The Impact of Industrial Automation on Worker Safety


The value of human life is incalculable. Our industries and manufacturing facilities have not evolved to a stage where worker injuries are completely eliminated. But we have advanced significantly in worker safety compared to the first few epochs of the industrial revolution. This was made possible by a gradual improvement in mechanization and process automation.
