Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter or book articleProfessional


To identify the hazards caused by industrial robots, past accidents need to be carefully analysed. Nicolaisen (1985) states that there is little data available on robot-related accidents, and there may be a high percentage of unrecorded accidents. Accidents involving robot use are difficult to identify in the classification of accidents caused by other machines (Sugimoto and Kawaguchi, 1985; Karwowski et al., 1988).
