Companies considering small collaborative robot solutions (1-2 robots) should get an experienced integrator to perform the risk assessment.  

Meanwhile, big factories planning major installations of 10 or 20 collaborative robot systems should “empower people to learn.”

“Get some help in the beginning, but educate your people enough to do it on their own. If you do this, you'll be able to fine tune your applications better, because you'll have better control.”
