In flexible manufacturing systems (FMS) where industrial robots are in use, often little attention is paid to working conditions and safety to the human part of the system (operator, programmer, maintenance personnel). However, it is very difficult for many users to find a suitable solution for their problem. Although working groups, discussing and formulating safety standards for industrial robots, were already formed in various countries at a very early time, it is apparent that safety at the industrial workstation cannot be achieved solely by observing regulations, but can only be guaranteed if it is included from the outset in the overall system concept and layout as a planning criterion, and practical planning aids for health and safety aspects are provided to the designer.
