The aim of our project is to take a system-wide approach to preventing the machine accident. The system includes not just the machine and the operator; but rather, it includes everything from the initial design of the machine to the training of everyone that is responsible for any aspect of it, to the documentation of all changes, to regular safety audits and a finally a corporate culture of safety-first. Design is the part of a machine’s life where the greatest impact can be made in relation to avoiding accidents. The designer should ensure that the machine is safe to set up and operate, safe to install, safe to maintain, safe to repair, and safe to decommission. Although safe operation is usually at the forefront of a designer’s mind, safe maintenance and repair should also be a high priority. Around 50% of fatal accidents involving industrial equipment are associated with maintenance activities, and design is a contributory factor in some 32% of these fatalities. In our project the IR sensors are used to avoiding the accident. The system automatically stops, when the IR sensor detecting the any parts of the operator inside the machine.
