Fran Brunelle, President of Accelerated Manufacturing Brokers, discussed how small manufacturers are more challenged by COVID-19 because social distancing may be too difficult with fewer square feet and robotics may be part of the solution. Brunelle’s article can be read in the recent issue of Robotics Tomorrow here.
According to Brunelle, the back-to-work strategy must include a wide array of health and safety precautions ranging from physical proximity, temperature taking, plexiglass partitions, entry and exit protocols. Already stressed and overworked before the pandemic, the roles of QA/QC, HR, and operations managers are adapting to the “new normal” which must include both an environmental health and safety (EHS) and occupational health and safety (OHS) functionality.
The employee safety and mitigation strategies implementing robotics in Q3 2020 position a manufacturer for acquisition. Obviously, the acquirer wants to see that sales orders did not diminish during COVID-19; they also want to ensure that the company has addressed the potential health and safety liabilities. Robotic implementation easily witnessed in a safe plant tour, assuages the potential buyers’ concerns.
