The adoption of automation to improve workplace safety has never been more appealing than during COVID-19.

In the past, automated technologies were used to improve safety and prevent workplace accidents. Employees no longer had to work in unsafe and hazardous conditions. Automated Mobile Robots also known as AMR’s, replaced Forklifts to reduce the likelihood of accidents caused by human error.

Now automation has the added bonus of improving workplace safety by helping businesses mitigate the risk of in-person contact and deal with staff shortages, reducing the pressure on fatigued and overworked shadow staff.
