Abstract A graphic method for the application of safety by design in an automated manufacturing plant is presented. Special symbols were designed for a large number of the hazards encountered in manufacturing industries and for the available guards and other safety devices. These symbols are used in the construction design of the plant and as warning signs within the completed factory. The method is illustrated by using a plant with 50 injection moulding machines in eight sizes.
