Summary  Microsoft Kinect sensor was introduced with the XBOX gaming console. It features a simple and portable motion capturing system. Kinect nowadays presents a point of interest in many fields of study and areas of research where its affordable price compared to its capabilities. The Kinect sensor has the capability to capture and track detected 3D objects with accuracy comparable to that captured by state of the art commercial systems. Human safety is considered one of the highest concerns, specially nowadays where the existence of machines and robots is widely used. In this paper we present using the Kinect technology for enhancing the safety of equipment and operations in seven different applications. These applications include 1) positioning of child’s car seat to optimise the child’s position in respected to front and side air-bags; 2) board positioning system to improve the teacher’s arm reach posture; 3) gas station safety to prevent children from accessing the gas pump; 4) indoor pool safety to avoid children access to deep pool area; 5) robot safety emergency stop; 6) Workplace safety; and 7) older adults fall prediction.
