Risk Assessment and Cobot Biomechanical Study


If you add a Cobot to your production line, you create a machine or a partly completed machinery that must be incorporated and therefore you must comply with the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC. Among other issues, the Directive imposes the obligation to perform a risk assessment.
In addition, if the Cobot is going to work in collaborative mode, a biomechanical study must be performed to determine if the Cobot is likely to hit or trap the operator in the collaborative zone. Such risks of being hit or trapped must be below the thresholds indicated by the standard.


Our risk assessment and biomechanical study is based upon the following standards or specifications:
  • EN ISO 12100 Safety of machinery. General principles for design. Risk assessment and risk reduction.
  • ISO/TR 14121-2 Safety of machinery -- Risk assessment -- Part 2: Practical guidance and examples of methods.
  • ISO/TS 15066 Robots and robotic devices -- Collaborative Robots (Cobots).


An example of a biomechanical study is shown below:
