When deploying increasingly complex and hazardous new machines and upgrading existing machines for more demanding applications, the right Safety Concept, which considers the interaction of machine operators, maintenance personnel and other workers with machines, is critical.

Safety concept is document in standard format, defining through sketches and description, safety measures and include detailed engineering solution proposed to achieve safety and compliance, through electrical, mechanical, and other measures following best industry practice and national or international standards. Safety concepts can be useful to designers when developing a safety design.
