dc.description.abstract With the ever-increasing complexity of manufacturing systems, safety cannot be ensured through add-on measures alone; rather safety has to be built into the design. This principle is called inherently safer design. Inherently safer systems seek to eliminate hazards rather than control them. In this chapter, we discuss the various sub-principles of inherent safety and illustrate their implementation with examples from diverse fields. Furthermore, the chapter highlights how the principle relates to others approaches to safety.
