Work Injury in the Age of Robots
We’re living in such odd times that one common science fiction trope after another is starting to look like a real possibility. This time the reality has already been here for a couple of decades: killer robots.
These robots aren’t super-strong sentient machines like the Terminator, but rather industrial robots that build cars, speed up manufacturing, and perform all kinds of tasks. They are built equipped with several censors that are supposed to read when humans are near. With an increase in censors, there can often be an increase in technological issues. Unfortunately for workers who must repair or work alongside these machines, they are not always completely reliable and can malfunction, causing work injury. Over the years, these malfunctions have resulted in serious work injury and even death.
