Accidents at work occur every year. They usually have dire consequences for all concerned, not just the person in question, but their family, workmates and managers.
A workplace accident could also have significant financial consequences for the company. A well-organised workplace could help to prevent many workplace accidents.
The employer is responsible for the workplace and the working conditions there. Hence, it is the responsibility of the employer to ensure, as far as possible, that employees are not exposed to accidents or ill health.

Wenden wir uns der letzten Frage zuerst zu. In der relativ kurzen Geschichte der Industrierobotik wurden Schutzzäune die meiste Zeit hauptsächlich – wenn nicht sogar ausschließlich – als ein Mittel verstanden, Personen aus dem Gefahrenbereich fernzuhalten. Zu Recht. Denn die Unfallhistorie der Robotik zeigt, dass Menschen von Robotern gestoßen oder auf andere Weise fast ausschließlich dann verletzt wurden, wenn sie in den Gefahrenbereich eindrangen. Dies geschah entweder versehentlich, weil es keine geeigneten/ausreichenden Schutzmaßnahmen gab, oder absichtlich, weil eine Person die Schutzeinrichtung umging oder manipulierte.
